Joel,

I asked my T if there were any counselors that did counseling via video conferencing or webcam-to-webcam over the internet. She said there's actually a whole practice built on it now and it's called Distance Counceling. She said the board that certifies counselors would have a resource for certified distance counselors.

One website defined it this way: "Distance Counseling is a counseling approach that takes the best practices of traditional counseling as well as some of its own unique advantages and adapts them for delivery to clients via electronic means in order to maximize the use of technology-assisted counseling techniques. The technology-assisted methods may include telecounseling (telephone), secure email communication, chat, videoconferencing or computerized stand-alone software programs."

Anyway - just wanted to let you and any other users that are 'remotely-located' or in 'service-limited' locations to know that there's still counseling options even in the most remote locations.

So I Google'd "Distance Counseling" and found http://www.adca-online.org/ (American Distance Counseling Association).

Anyway - just an idea - hope you are well.

confused as to why I am here.
no i'm not suicidal just depressed and pondering why i am here and why anyone has to go thru any type of sexual abuse.

what is the purpose of putting people thru hell by letting this happen.

guess this ties into my beliefs somehow. i was raised lutheran and am pondering the word "why" when it comes to many subjects. all of this pain and misery doesn't make much sense of being a way to teach and make one stronger.

maybe i have too many questions, don't know.
