I want to share with you a resource I just started offering patients – direct access to live video counseling through a service called Breakthrough.

What’s “live video counseling”?

It’s the chance to have our scheduled office visits through your computer screen. We can meet from your couch, your office, your hotel room – basically, from wherever you have access to the Internet.

Breakthrough makes getting therapy convenient. It also works – research has found that online counseling is as effective as in-person counseling. And thanks to a highly secure connection our sessions will remain private.

Live video counseling, also known as behavioral telehealth, is covered by many major insurance companies. If you’re interested in pursuing this option, let me know and I can investigate whether you’re eligible for coverage.

In the meantime, go ahead and explore Breakthrough to see if you like it. Using the service requires no special software or technical skills.

Here’s how to get started:

  1. Create an account. Start Now or go to Breakthrough.
  2. Search for my profile.
  3. Request an appointment through my online calendar.
It’s as simple as that.

We can discuss this at our next visit, if you’d like, and the support team at Breakthrough (contact: 888.282.2522; is also available to answer any questions you might have.

Best regards,
