Online Counseling in the 98003 Area

What exactly is online counseling? Think of it as the same service as an in-office counseling session, except you will video chat with your therapist from the comfort of your home, work, or other location. Online counseling allows you to schedule your regular counseling sessions without ever having to commute to our office. Online counseling is an excellent choice if you travel frequently, have a disability and cannot drive, work long hours at your job, do not have access to childcare, or have a hectic schedule. 

With our online counseling in Federal Way, WA, you can use a device such as a smartphone or a tablet to safely and securely communicate with your counselor via video. We can schedule your online counseling session for a time that is convenient for you—whether it’s after your children are asleep, in the evening after work, or even over the weekend.
