eTherapy is not a substitute for crisis intervention nor suitable for the treatment of severe or complex mental illness including but not limited to psychosis, suicidal thoughts or homicidal thoughts. If you are in crisis or experiencing severe symptoms, proceed immediately to the nearest emergency room/crisis center or dial 911. Confidentiality is limited by federal and state laws when a person is a danger to themselves or someone else and in the case of abuse or neglect. Licensed Mental Health Counselors are mandatory reporters. There is also a national suicide crisis hotline at 1-800-273-TALK (8255) or to chat with a crisis counselor.
Scope of Practice
Due to various laws regarding the practice of mental health counseling, Greener Side Counseling currently offers services to residents of Indiana and Florida only (states in which I am currently licensed to practice). I apologize for any inconvenience and encourage you to continue your search if you live outside of these states. There are many, many talented therapists in the sea!
