Online Therapy with Children and Teens in Chesterfield, VA—Counselors and Therapists

Have you ever wondered how you could find time for therapy or counseling for your child or teen? Family life is increasingly busy. Most families manage juggling multiple responsibilities and commitments every day. This can make it challenging to seek out and be consistent with counseling appointments. In fact, over half of people desiring counseling or therapy do not seek out services. This is often due to time constraints, accessibility, location, and convenience.

One popular approach to addressing these issues is online counseling, often called telehealth.

What Are the Biggest Advantages of Online Therapy for Children and Teens?

Thriveworks Chesterfield online therapy helps address concerns related to the stigma of counseling. Gone are the worries of explaining to peers why you have to leave school early. Gone are the worries of encountering someone you know at or near your counselor’s office.

Children and teens are growing up with technology, making telehealth a natural fit for many. Use of a familiar mode of interaction, video chatting, helps build trust with the counselor, because it is familiar and comfortable. It is literally more comfortable as you can participate from the comfort of their home. It is also more comfortable in a mental and emotional sense for many children and teens, who struggle to share feelings.

Thriveworks Chesterfield online therapy allows for flexibility and consistency of sessions. Severe weather, illness, and travel no longer require rescheduling or delaying of planned sessions. Concerns are less when it comes to managing school and work schedules to make it to sessions on time. Consistency and routine of sessions supports children and teens in meeting all related counseling goals.

Lastly, therapists get an improved understanding of a child or teen’s life by actually viewing the home environment during the online therapy sessions. Thriveworks Chesterfield online Therapists can potentially see more honest family interactions and understand more fully the child or teen’s actual behavior through online therapy sessions. This allows the therapist to provide potentially more effective interventions, and provide parents with more accurate feedback on parenting approaches.
