Dulcinea's Insight

  • Remember to be patient in your search for a mental health provider, whether you're looking on the Web or speaking with another physician for recommendations on professional assistance. Choosing someone to help you with your problems is a big decision and it's not one you want to make hastily.
  • Online counseling (also known as "e-therapy") is a growing trend among mental health providers. If you don't have access to suitable mental health resources in your area, or you'd prefer to speak with a professional located in another area, it's possible to find a therapist or counselor who would be willing to visit with you online or via telephone.
  • If you're interested in online counseling, check on a therapist's Web site to see if this option is available with that particular professional.
