Confidential Phone Counseling and Therapy

(713) 668-3838

Michele K. Lane, BCD, LCSW

Research has shown phone counseling to be effective (Simon et al., 2004). The method that I use, cognitive-behavioral therapy, has been found to work better with phone therapy than therapy that focuses on discussions of feelings (Mohr, 2005).

Phone therapy is a valuable option for people seeking help from a professional. Phone counseling has the following advantages:

  1. It is easy and convenient.
  2. You can stay in the comfort of your home of office.
  3. It provides the privacy of the telephone, avoiding eye contact etc.

When you first call we will discuss the best time for the appointment, goals for therapy, and the fee.

I am a counselor specializing in short-term effective psychotherapy. My expertise includes couples/marriage counseling, depression, obsession, anxiety, family and individual counseling, infidelity issues, separation and divorce adjustment, and step parenting.

I have been a psychotherapist for over 30 years. I earned a Masters degree in Social Work from the University of Michigan and am Board Certified by the National Board of Examiners. I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker licensed by the Texas Department of Human Services.
