Michael has received sex therapy at the top of a mountain. He's also had counseling outside his Silicon Valley apartment and in the parking lot of a nearby airport. In each of these locations and many others, he speaks from the privacy of his car. There, he feels he can be more frank with his sexologist than he could inside a therapist's office."
The article goes on to note an important finding about e-therapy:
“Stephen Biggs, a PhD candidate in clinical psychology, surveyed 44 people who said they had received therapy strictly over the Internet. Among these respondents, 16 percent said their therapy involved sexual issues; ages varied and women outnumbered men. Eighty percent (35) said they found the therapy experience somewhat or very positive, but all said they would use online therapy again and “reported that the therapist was empathic,” he said.”
