At the Ray of Hope Center, we offer mediation services. Mediation is a voluntary process in which the parties to a dispute are aided in their settlement negotiation by a neutral third party called a mediator. The mediator does not have the power to impose a resolution. Rather, the role of the mediator and the goal of the process is to help the parties achieve their own resolution.
Mediation enables the parties to communicate perceptions, feelings, and information directly to one another in a controlled environment. This type of communication often reduces hostility and facilitates rational discussion.

You are now motivated and ready to make some change in your life with the help of a professional but logistics are in your way. If commuting to and from one more appointment or finding childcare, parking having to tell someone at work “hey I need to head out for an appointment every week at this same time” may or may not be hard to explain.
We support busy professionals and busy families who are on the go with online and teletherapy. Our online video conferencing software is designed for our team so you have assured convenience, privacy and more importantly, HIPAA compliance.
Research displays teletherapy can be more effective than face-to-face therapy in certain situations.
The Benefits of Teletherapy:
- Flexible: Scheduling Options. It’s easier to find time to meet and change/reschedule an appointment.
- Build Up To In-Person Therapy: Sometimes a safe distance is what we need to start out. Teletherapy is great for people who might be nervous about coming to therapy to feel comfortable opening up.
- Technology Options: Choose the phone or webcam.
- Convenient: Call or email to schedule and conduct a session from wherever you are! This is convenient for working families, professionals, and stay at home parents.
- No Commute: Save money, time and the earth.
Our Teletherapy counseling and coaching services can be provided via FaceTime, Zoom, or another similar method.
Teletherapy is especially helpful for college students who may need a few supporter sessions and people with busy travel schedules. Therapist for Depression. Talk with your counselor or coach to find out if this is an option for you.
The Reasons Teletherapy Is Effective:
- First, people miss fewer appointments because of the convenience factor so they reap the rewards of regular attendance.
- For some people, they need to build up to being vulnerable in close physical space with another person.
Teletherapy is a great therapeutic way of growing the ability to relate more openly and honestly. Start with teletherapy, and build up to face-to-face interaction.
