My Approach to Helping

Our main goal at Online Virtual Counselors is to provide quality online therapy in English or Spanish (also known as virtual counseling, teletherapy, or cyber-counseling). We warmly welcome individuals, couples, and families who are navigating personal difficulties or times of significant change.

We invite you to share a therapeutic experience to explore and uncover your true essence, manage your emotional pain, and work to shift your internal view of yourself to a positive awareness of who you genuinely are. We work well with issues such as: anxiety; depression; trauma; self esteem; single parents; familial and other relationships.

We think getting some solid, experienced input can be very helpful. A new perspective, a new idea, a supportive trusting ear is always a good opportunity, especially when life becomes more challenging. We would be happy to join you on your discovery towards a more joyful, peaceful, and successful life.

Importance of the Client-Therapist Alliance

"Astounding assistance and I need to says thanks to Raquel for paying attention to my Mother, and improving... I have in the past taken my mom to a few mental help, however it never appeared to work. As of late set up an arrangement for my mother in an exceptionally a surprising bit of news, and I when we left the workplace I could see a distinction in my mother's disposition. Much thanks to you Raquel ... I will keep on carrying my mother to your practice..." - C.T

"I have worked with Zev Berkowitz for the past 2 years and would highly recommend. Zev is inviting and easy to talk to but challenges you to work on yourself and the issues that you may be facing. We worked on couple's therapy first and now i continue to use Zev as a personal therapist to work on my personal challenges. He is also very flexible with his schedule, and always available to talk or even text." - R. T

"Working with Tara is fantastic because she provides a safe, nonjudgmental environment where you may examine your problems with a kind but incredibly powerful guiding hand. Would strongly advise." - M. P
