ONLINE COUNSELING FOR COLLEGE STUDENTS
In our experience working with families we find that when kids are approaching going away to colleges parents start to worry. Parents often feel helpless when their children are away because they do not if things are going well, if their children are not being honest and they worry. Quite often when kids begin college they struggle and have no one to talk to about their issues. They are often afraid to tell their parents because they do not want them to think that they are not successful. If they are depressed they begin to isolate and fall behind in their school work rather than getting help. Sometimes they do not know what is wrong and the situation just worsens instead of getting resolved.
We offer online counseling for kids that are going away to college. It gives them someone they can talk to or just check in with weekly or as needed. It gives them someone other than their parents that will listen and not judge them but guide them in the right direction. We have seen many seniors who are anxious about college or going away to school. Once they come in and meet with a therapist over the summer and know that they will continue to talk to that person who they trust when away, the anxiety lessens, because they do not feel alone. If you have a child that suffers from depression this form of therapy is extremely helpful. All parents wish that their children would confide in them but more often than not, they afraid to share their feelings. Many parents feel more at ease when they know that someone is available seven days a week and 24 hours a day in an emergency. If you have a child starting college or is struggling in college, give us a call and we can further explain how cyber-counseling works.
