Although experts charge a rate that they choose for the video consultations, many experts offer an initial consultation at no charge.
Fort Lauderdale, Florida (PRWEB) April 11, 2013
Webponder.com, an online advice website, is trying to make finding a psychologist in Fort Lauderdale, and obtaining online counseling, an easier and more efficient process. Webponder is a website where people go to get advice and expertise online through live video chats with experts and professionals in a variety of fields.
Webponder provides those looking for therapy with an option other than meeting with a therapist in person, counseling with an online therapist. There are online counselors who have years of experience in, and focus portions of their practice on, providing mental health therapy online to those in need.
Online therapy initially started with email therapy, where the client and therapist would communicate through email, and then evolved into therapy through live video chat as video streaming applications became more prevalent and reliable. Now, although it is more common than it has ever been, only a percentage of licensed mental health professionals offer online services.
Although visitors to Webponder can find experts offering advice in hundreds of different areas of expertise, mental health is one of the more popular subjects on Webponder. Other popular areas of interest include free lawyer advice, auto expert advice, and advice about changing technology. Although the experts charge a rate that they choose for the video consultations, many experts offer an initial consultation at no charge. For example, a lawyer may elect to offer free legal advice to someone trying to get an explanation as to how to fight a traffic ticket, what to do if they are in a car accident, or how do you sue someone.
Webponder was founded in Miami, Florida in 2012, and is now seeking psychologists, licensed clinical therapists, and other mental health professionals in the Broward County area, as well as other locations throughout the country, to be listed on Webponder.com. Inquiries on how to join Webponder as an online mental health professional can be directed to Webponder Managing Director and co-founder Steve Thompson at (305) 373-7775.
