Why Online Counseling?
With our fast-paced lives, I wanted to create a service that was convenient and easily accessible. Here are some of the benefits of online life coaching and counseling:
-You don’t have to go anywhere! It can be hard for parents to chauffeur kids to all of their extra-curriculars and appointments; not to mention the time and money spent taking off work. Your child can have a counseling session from the comfort of home.
-Ease of communication. Let’s face it, teens are very comfortable online. Why not adapt ourselves for their benefit. I admit, I am more of a face-to-face kind of person, but I can’t tell you the number of times a young person has told me about their “friend in Finland (Florida, Sweden, Australia…).” If this is how they can most easily and freely communicate, then why not embrace it!
-Adolescents are naturally less communicative with adults. For better or for worse, the veil of the computer or phone gives just enough anonymity for a teen to be able to open up more. If there is less of a chance of running into their counselor in public, all the better ;-).
-Flexibility of time. We can schedule appointments day or night at a mutually agreeable time.
