The World Health Organization (WHO) declared the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) outbreak a national pandemic. To ensure the safety of the public, the Center for Disease Control (CDC) recommended that health care providers begin taking steps to provide services remotely in order to help slow the spread of COVID-19.
This recommendation was quickly adopted and later enforced by many county and city districts, including through out Riverside County and the greater Palm Springs area. Interestingly enough, despite the quarantine orders a lot more people were contacting me in need of services for their mental health.
In the midst of an international pandemic, I realized that there were a lot more people out there who could benefit from my support and I began brainstorming on more ways that I could help.
I turned my practice into online counseling and I joined BetterHelp.com.
(Don't worry current clients, I still offer on site and in office support.)

BetterHelp is an interactive service where I am able to create an authentic connection with my clients and build a strong therapeutic relationship. One of the best features about BetterHelp.com is their attention to customer satisfaction. As a treatment provider, my clients are able to leave reviews and rate their experience with me which helps me develop a treatment plan that meets their needs.
