Hello and thanks for writing. This can be a tricky service to find as rules and regulations are changing quickly around this topic and each state is somewhat different. What state do you live in? Check out these for starters...

If you let me know what state you are in, I may be able to help further.

If you use the above link, you can put any zip code you'd like and then sort by online counseling and psychiatrists on the left side of the screen. This is actually my favorite and most sued site for locating counselors and I just noticed the addition of the online counseling search feature. Super great way to find people..

Ok, I'll stop hunting. I do suggest you call your local pharmacy to verify that they accept scripts from out-of-state doctors. Looks like this varies by state and even type of medication....
