Online Teen Counseling

Effective help for teens and young adults, when and where it works best for you

How it Works

We understand that teens face unique challenges and need to talk to therapists who are relatable, down to earth and switched on about culture and technology. While this is a marriage counseling site, a handful of our Christian counselors also specialize in working with teens aged 14 and up. We understand families and how they work. We know that parents worry a lot about their teens, but their teens sometimes just need a place to talk and figure out life and the huge choices they have to make.

Depending on your circumstances and the age of the teenager, we begin with either parents and the teen present or (if older) just the teen.  We follow a three-stage approach:

  1. Identify counseling goals: The first session or two are spent getting comfortable with each other, learning about what brings the young person to therapy, and agreeing on goals for our sessions together.
  2. Explore dynamics: We talk through the dynamics of your most important social contexts: your family, friend group, school mates and so on. We'll work with you on overcoming the most important challenges you face in these contexts. If you think it would be helpful, we'll invite your parents to join when necessary.
  3. Create Connection: We will guide you towards independently creating new solutions to old problems and developing new ways of relating and connecting to others around you. We're also happy to help you explore future goals and plans.

Over the years Evi has often observed that people’s greatest pain occurs in the context of their closest relationships leaving partners feeling hopeless and alone. Using faith and EFT she believes that no matter how far apart you feel from connecting with your partner, it is possible to reconnect, re-kindle, sustain and nurture your relationship.

Ricky believes that unprocessed emotions are what push people apart. Since we are created for connection, disconnection leaves individuals, families, and couples feeling distant, empty and in despair. Through the integration of faith and evidenced-based psychotherapy modalities, Ricky hopes to join you in your journey of finding new, loving ways of connecting. (Hablamos español)
