If you are in a crisis situation, or if you are currently suicidal, or if you are experiencing physical or sexual abuse, please contact your local hospital for a referral. These are not the kinds of issues we can handle on-line.
Although Dr. Steinbaum is a licensed psychiatrist, he does not suggest nor recommend medications through Video Live Counseling. On-line counseling is not a substitute for traditional psychotherapy but rather an alternative method of counseling. If you can visit a therapist in person, you should.
Video Live Counseling may not be used as a substitute for treatment by a physician and is not to be used by a person in need for emergency care.
Please also note that if you disclose intent to harm yourself or others, the law and ethics require the authorities be contacted.
This is not a crisis line
