I do online therapy if my clients are not in the area to visit my office. Some clients are long distance and don't live near the Ventura area. Often I will have clients which I have worked with since adolescence who may attend colleges which are great distances. I'll continue to support them through college using a HIPAA compliant web based platform or telephone sessions. I'm definitely comfortable conducting online therapy using those methods. I've continued to work with many clients who have moved out of the area either temporarily or permanently. In these cases I can continue to support them in this manner or I can help them to find somebody locally and I can be phased out of their support network or system if they prefer that. I don't practice written online or long distance therapy as much as I do verbally.
