Those people who choose online sessions have the most flexibility for a very reasonable cost. Phone and live chat counseling are also quite flexible, but do require a commitment to a specific time slot, so are a bit more expensive.

Arranging distance counseling requires an introductory phone call in which you and Mrs. Rivers determine which modality is best suited to your needs (online, face-to-face, or phone). There is no charge for this short call.
