Hello and thank you for viewing my listing! I am a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor (Maryland license# LC3320, Board-Approved Supervisor #45), practicing since 2007, offering individual adult teletherapy. I use the HIPAA-compliant platform Doxy.me for scheduled sessions.
I specialize in anxiety disorders, mood disorders (depression), PTSD, domestic violence survivors, bilingual therapy (Spanish/English), and eating disorders. I work with adults only; regrettably no children, teens, nor couples/families.
I can be reached via email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or thru my website (www.farriscounselingservicesllc.com). More information on my practice, CV, payment options and client tools can be found on my website. I am physically located in Costa Rica, so, in-person sessions or availability via US-based phone are not offered. I no longer accept insurances.
