Online Therapy?

Answered by on -


Yes, I do believe it is effective and we have some programs here at Psych Central that may be helpful the first of the forums. These can put you in touch with others who are discussing and supporting each other through various issues. You can also learn more about this here and more about video online therapy here.

Wishing you patience and peace,
