Friend or Foe

Hello Audrey,

Excellent article! I have sucessfully used e-therapy in my practice with stepfamilies. I preferred video conferencing which was supplemented by emails when requested.

My motivation for offering e-therapy was similar to yours: to provide informed and needed clinical counselling services to stepfamilies who did not have access to stepfamily counsellors in their community. And given the dearth of therapists trained in stepfamily therapy there is a great need for cybercounselling across Canada.
