She’s amazing! I’ve been very hesitant to try therapy again as I haven’t found meshed well with my therapists in the past, but Poythress as a way of being real with you but no judgmental at the same time that’s refreshing! I would recommend her a million times over

About online counseling
Online counseling allows you to receive care from an online mental health practitioner via phone, video chat, or instant messaging. It is convenient for those who may have trouble getting to or would prefer not to have in-person therapy appointments. Ranging from $60 to $90 per week, online counseling is generally more affordable than in-person counseling. A study by researchers at University of California, Berkeley found that online counseling can be just as effective as face-to-face therapy while being more convenient, affordable, and accessible.
