Psychotherapy vs counseling
I am a licensed California psychotherapist and therefore I can provide psychotherapy services for California residents only (e.g., diagnose as a healthcare provider).
In addition to my private practice. I am a counselor for River Rock Counseling and because River Rock Counseling is a non-profit agency, I can provide "counseling" services outside of California as long as I state clearly in my consent form that I am not providing psychotherapy services, only counseling services, usually in the form of "tele-support."
