How does it work?
Mental Health eChats are conducted over Doxy.me a secure, encrypted web messaging and file transfer platform. It is super easy to use. At the time of our eChat session you simply click a link that takes you directly to my online waiting room. We then both select no camera or microphone to keep the session over chat.
You have two options to choose from:
30min Mental Health eChat Mini Session - this is a pre-booked 30 minute mini session where we interact purely over secure messaging. First we arrange a time to book an intake session. Once you complete your booking you will be prompted to fill out some important information and consent forms to get us started. *This option is great for someone who wants a shorter, lower cost option for a bit of extra support.
55 min Mental Health eChat Full Session - this is a pre-booked full session that includes pre-session therapeutic writing. Once you complete your booking you will be emailed some writing prompts to get your writing flowing. We then meet on our computers at our arranged time and I will review what you have written through secure file transfer, and prepare a recorded message for you. We finish with secure messaging for the remainder of the session. *This option is great for someone who likes to do journaling and wants more support for more challenging problems.
Let's start chatting

eChats are not for everyone. If you are experiencing more severe mental health issues such as self-harming, suicidal ideation, psychosis or a diagnosed mental health disorder then eChat is not an appropriate platform. Contact me for my other services such as Videoconferencing or in-person sessions.
