Welcome To My E-Counseling and Consultation Site!  
                

My name is Lois Ehrmann and I am a licensed professional counselor and a certified distance counselor. Since you are here I hope that you can find information that can be helpful to you in your search and journey.  You'll certainly find out a lot of information about me and my specialties but I am also hopeful that you will find the pages on internet counseling and consultation will serve you well in your decision making and goal setting.

 

Safety above all else is important.  In your search for some good and effective Internet counseling or consultation you should make  sure  of the following:

 

  • Make sure the person is really who he or she says he or she is.  Look for the individual's state and license on the site and then go to the state licensing board to verify that the individual is really licensed.          

 

  • Check out the certifications of the person and see if you can verify those as well.

 

  • Make sure that the person has listed his or her specialties and that they are the types  of specializations that you think will best help you.

 

  • Also check out the methodologies that the professional is offering in terms of service delivery.  Does the professional use some type of videoconferencing process? Is Skype or WebX used or some other platform that also uses security measures and encryption?
