Internet Counseling at The Kid's Therapy Center

What is it?

Internet counseling is technology –assisted distance counseling which utilizes the assistance of a computer to deliver a synchronous interaction process. This process represents communication that has little or no gap time between client and counselor response, which allows the experience to be similar to a face-to-face counseling session. Internet counseling utilizes a web-camera to provide individual video-based counseling  during which time the client and the therapist are able to see and hear each other.

 

Who is internet counseling appropriate for?

  • Clients who reside in a rural or remote area and have limited access to traditional therapy practices

  • Clients who would be required to travel long distances

  • Clients or caregivers who are unable to request an extended amount of time off from work or school

  • Clients who desire or require a therapist who specializes in children and adolescent therapy

 

Who is internet counseling not appropriate for?

  • Clients who are uncomfortable or unfamiliar with using a computer

  • Clients who has been diagnosed with a major mental illness

  • Clients who desire or are required to express themselves through a medium such as play or art.

 

How do I start?

One of the most essential parts of any successful therapy is the establishment of the client/counselor relationship. This strong relationship allows for growth and healing to take place at a deeper level, therefore it is necessary for the first 4 initial sessions to be conducted in-office. You may call us at 701.751.0384 to schedule an intake session to begin this process.
