Here are some important things to know about Virtual Therapy Services.
1. Virtual Therapists can only provide services in states where they are licensed (That's Texas and Louisiana for us).
2. Virtual therapy is NOT appropriate for some conditions and situations. (Serious Psychiatric Conditions or high crisis situations)
3. We all know how technology can sometimes fail to do what we want it to do. Be aware that this can also interfere with sessions. (lags in the video, echoes, internet issues, and don't forget security breaches and hackers).

Once you have processed the who, what, when, WHY, and where, and you have learned some skills, coaching may be the next level. Coaching involves a game plan and a guide to the living practice of what you have learned. We set goals, evaluate the best method of practice and make things happen. If something doesn't work, we come back to the table, re-evaluate and go for it again until you achieve the goals that you planned for. I am your cheerleader and accountability partner.
