How Can Zoom Counseling Help Me?


The key difference between in-person counseling and Zoom counseling (as well as other online counseling options) is that your sessions are held online rather than in-person. The focus is still to help you overcome challenges you might be facing, such as those rooted in mental health problems, stressors, or other major life issues. Here are a few common challenges that bring people into counseling:


  • Symptoms of a mental illness, such as depression, anxiety, or bipolar disorder
  • Relationship issues, like jealousy, infidelity, and disagreements in parenting
  • Personal problems, such as low self-esteem or feelings of loneliness
  • Major life transitions, like a big move or a job change
  • Stressors at work, such as poor time management or bullying

Save money, save time, save hassle do your counseling online with Ascend Counseling & Wellness.

Relationship crisis & mental health issues such as anxiety, depression, and stress can have an adverse impact on your health & well being, especially in times of widespread isolation and uncertainty, like what has been experienced during the past year.

TeleTherapy is at the forefront of the Mental & marriage & family community and if used appropriately it can be extremely beneficial for you and your loved ones. At Ascend Counseling & Wellness, clients are able to connect with marriage & family specialists, mental health counselors using their phone, tablet, or computer to chat or video-conference with ease.

Clayton has three sons and has been happily married for 13 years.  His wife Bonnie is the better therapist of the two, but her schedule is already fully booked by all of Clayton’s problems…so, she is unavailable.  Clayton’s sons are the joy of his life and he takes them on crazy adventures in hopes that when he is gone (hopefully many years from now) they will remember how he made them feel about themselves.
