other reason is that SL is not encrypted so, not as secure! We could use a sky box but, still that is not as secure as we would like. We could use proprietary software in SL but, not cost effective for small private practitioners. So, bringing someone in for a more casual consult is easier.

We also wanted a three-D version of our website, another place to tell our story and spread the word. And I can see someone who is in-world - as a client – but, we would meet in an encrypted chat or email exchange. I can meet a client in SL- meet them here or in a place they want me to see- meet them as their avatar- the image they want me to hold, so they can display different parts of self. Then, we return to an encrypted chat to do the therapy. There are other projects funded by universities but, not accessible to the average person. But, we plan to host learning groups and conferences and I have been training in person about online therapy since 2004. We do have a social network that friends
