What was your path to becoming a therapist? What inspired you to choose this profession?

Our main goal at Online Virtual Counselors is to provide quality online therapy in English or Spanish (also known as virtual counseling, teletherapy, or cyber-counseling). We warmly welcome individuals, couples, and families who are navigating personal difficulties or times of significant change. We invite you to share a therapeutic experience to explore and uncover your true essence, manage your emotional pain, and work to shift your internal view of yourself to a positive awareness of who you genuinely are. We work well with issues such as: anxiety; depression; trauma; self esteem; single parents; familial and other relationships. We think getting some solid, experienced input can be very helpful. A new perspective, a new idea, a supportive trusting ear is always a good opportunity, especially when life becomes more challenging. We would be happy to join you on your discovery towards a more joyful, peaceful, and successful life.
