While the world has adapted to Zoom meetings, tele-doc appointments and online school, Texas teenagers have experienced significant social losses in their daily lives. With an uncertain future about schooling in the Fall, teletherapy is a powerful way to equip teens for navigating the "new normal." One of our very own therapists, Courtney Jordan, LPC, speaks about how she has seen her teen clients cope.
Teenagers are prone to depressed moods
and isolated behaviors already, and our current social distancing can increase those feelings
," says Jordan. "
ot seeing friends also makes them feel that they are lacking support
These feelings, compounded with current events, can leave teens feeling hopeless, and parents wondering how to best help. One simple solution - telehealth counseling.
"With a regular teletherapy session, we can talk about coping skills, and ways to stay socially connected. And the telehealth itself keeps teens connected and receiving that support."
