WHO WE SERVE
"What if my friends find out?!" "You can't make me go!"
Does this sound familiar? Online counseling can be effective for teens aged 15 and up, with parental consent and participation.
A long time best practice in clinical work with children/adolescents has been to meet clients in their natural environment, presumably home and school. Nowadays, let's face it. Our kids are spending so much more time on their devices that their natural environment has become cyberspace. While parents may feel their teens spend too much time online, or that their online relationships are not genuine, nevertheless this is the world our children are growing up in. This can be an effective place for teens who may be resistant to attending in-person sessions. Even if your teen is interested or even asking for help, your teen can benefit from online sessions, simply because they are often experienced with the concept of video chatting. Your teen must have parental consent to begin the online therapy process. Parental participation is welcomed and is expected on at least a monthly basis.
