Does anyone have experience with online counseling/therapy, either from the giving or receiving end? What was good or bad about your experience?

Was the therapist hosted by a portal site, such as Kasamba.com or HelpHorizons.com? Has anyone found a portal site they just love? Or can't stand? What do you love or hate about it?
Or was it the therapist's own site, and if so, what was good or bad about this? From the therapist's perspective, how do you make people aware of your site? How do you handle the billing part?
From the client's perspective, how did you choose an online therapit? What sort of fee seems fair to you?
I am a psychologist and long-time psychotherapist who is considering providing services online. Before I jump in, I'd like to know what others have learned from experience. If I'm going to do it, I want to make sure I do it well.
