Counseling From Your Couch

Why Online Counseling? It’s simple! It works and is very effective. I am a click away.

I am Compassionate, Competent and Focused on Results!

I am pleased to announce I am accepting Private Pay clients for Online Video Counseling and Life Coaching. These sessions are completely secure, confidential and HIPAA compliant.

Online Counseling is effective for most clients and, per the studies noted below, achieves the same results as in office visits. I have successfully used video counseling for the past two years. As my clients learn to slow down and become more self-aware and conscious, we have created successful and satisfying outcomes. By gaining a sense of balance and harmony, they have been able to create calmness, success and satisfaction in their lives. The progress my clients have achieved is remarkable.

I am a State of Utah Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor with 23 years of experience.

Utah State License # 331360-6004.

Online psychotherapy has the unique benefit of meeting you in the privacy of your home for personal counseling or problem solving. Using the Internet, professional counselors like me are forming effective, helping relationships with people like you.

You will find Online Counseling is convenient, affordable and can be scheduled at your convenience.

If you want help dealing with depression or anxiety, but don’t have the time or money for traditional counseling or psychotherapy, a number of startups now offer a high-tech alternative. Sign up for one of these sites and you can reach out and communicate with a counselor via Internet, or phone.

Several small studies have found the approach shows promise for certain patients.Research published in the Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews in March found that therapist-supported cognitive behavior therapy (CBT) delivered over the Internet appears to be an effective treatment option for anxiety in adults. Another review published in 2014 found that telephone or online counseling could help people with depression return to work sooner.

No Difference!

Columbia University

“Fourteen studies of 500 patients have compared tele-psychiatry using standardized assessment instruments that permit meaningful comparisons. In those studies, the current meta-analysis concludes there is no difference in accuracy or satisfaction between the two modalities. Over the next few years, we expect tele-psychiatry to replace I-P in certain research and clinical situations.”

Statistically Similar

The NY Times wrote: “Studies have concluded that patient satisfaction with face-to-face interaction and online therapy was statistically similar.

Kind Words From Clients

Sharon St. John is the most caring person I have ever met in my life. She not only makes me feel very comfortable but she truly cares and goes out of her way to help me. I have been seeing her every Friday and look forward to each and every time. She doesn’t just send me on my way and forget about me when I walk out of her door, there have been many times that I have gone back to her for another session and she has researched and found information for me in regards to things I am struggling with If she wasn’t really concerned about her clients she wouldn’t go our of her way to do those kinds of things. Sharon isn’t in this profession for the money but for genuine concern for people and being able to help them. She is never judgmental but always understanding and helpful.
