The technology in which clients and clinicians are able to communicate has expanded vastly over the last few years. Clinicians are now able to reach clients that they otherwise would not have been able to reach several years ago via the standard office visit. Many clients are now preferring virutal visits for various reasons and the trend for this platform will most likely continue to increase.

I have always been in a helping profession. I was a teacher for several years. As I was teaching, I went back to school to get my counseling degree. I have always had a passion for helping others. I felt counseling would allow me to specifically focus on helping others with their hurts, habits, and hang-ups.
