We treat a wide range of issues through secure, confidential, live video connection, linking compassionate, experienced English-speaking counselors with expatriates across the world. Most of our providers have either lived overseas themselves or have extensive experience treating people who have lived and worked internationally. In short, we understand both the joys and demands that accompany living in a foreign country and culture."
