Professional advice -  Help is just a confidential phone call away.
Talk To Me- Dr. Tom Golden’s Telephone Consultation Service  
Over the years, I have often heard the following telephone messages: “Dr. Golden, can we just talk for a moment.” Or, “ Dr. Golden this will only take a minute. I don’t need an office appointment.” Or, “ Dr. Golden, I just need to talk to someone – it won’t take long.”

During my 36 years of practice, there were many occasions when a person called and had a personal, family or job concern and they just needed to talk. Often a person has no desire for therapy, but is in need of a confidential, impartial, and timely response from a professional. In times of crisis, there is no reason to feel that you are alone. When your need is to sort things out, to set priorities, or to simply get helpful information a telephone consultation will often bring relief. A listener, and another voice is frequently all the help we need.

I am a phone call away to answer your concerns about your partner, children, health as well as many other issues.

Your telephone consultation is either 25 or 50 minutes. The time is reserved for you, and pre-scheduled at your convenience. To reserve your time, simply click here. All fees will be paid by credit card (Visa, Master Card, American Express, Discover) when the appointment time is scheduled. Twenty-Four hour cancellation notice is required, or the fee will be charged to your card. Communicate through Skype by phone/web cam also!
