Why Choose Online Therapy?

 

 

Research shows that online therapy is just as effective as in person therapy.

Online therapy provides more comfort, convenience, and children and teens find it a less intimidating & approachable space - improving their engagement and outcome.

 

You have access to your therapist wherever you are; if you are away, moved locations, running late, can't drop off, etc. Online therapy makes getting your child's mental health care easy & accessible - with a click of a button!

As online therapy is just as engaging; it is effective for patients with ADHD & younger children.
