Available throughout the United States, virtual counseling, also called teletherapy or online therapy, lets your adolescent, teen, or young adult easily connect with a therapist through a computer or smartphone to overcome mental health issues, such as depression, obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), borderline personality disorder (BPD), attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), trauma, or bipolar disorders.   

Parent coaching is also available, offering support for parents as they navigate challenging behavioral health issues at any stage of their child’s life.  

If you’d like to transition your son or daughter from online therapy to an in-person program, we have multiple options that provide the level of care your adolescent, teen, or young adult needs to overcome difficult mental health issues.

Please note: Embark’s virtual counseling is not insurance reimbursable. Embark Behavioral Health offers competitive private-pay pricing options to serve your family's needs and schedule.

The CASA Framework

CASA stands for commitment, acceptance, security, and attunement (also known as empathy in action).

Virtual Counseling FAQ  

Our virtual counseling can be very effective for:  

  • Adolescents, teens, or young adults who would benefit from online therapy in the convenience of their home.  
  • Parents who need online coaching while their child is in treatment (or anytime).  
  • Families who feel they could benefit from online therapy.  
  • Families who feel they could benefit from online family therapy.   

Online therapy can be a great option for adolescents, teens, young adults, or families who can benefit from the flexibility and accessibility of virtual treatment while staying at home and maintaining their daily schedule. For those who need more in-depth 24-hour care, residential treatment, wilderness therapy, transitional living, or an inpatient hospitalization may provide a more appropriate level of care.  

Parent coaching offers support for parents whose children may be entering treatment or discharging from a program or who need extra support during the program. Also known as family therapy without the primary client (the child), parent coaching provides a therapeutic foundation for caregivers by giving them a support system, helping them tackle challenging topics, and celebrating key milestones along the treatment journey. 

During online family therapy sessions, your family will gain insights on how to communicate effectively and address conflict. You’ll also receive tools and resources that can help your family through its healing journey. 

Virtual counseling can be completed anywhere across the country and provides individual and family therapy options for adolescents, teens, and young adults as well as parent coaching. Our virtual IOP, available in Georgia, Maryland, Colorado, and Texas at this time, provides group, individual, and family therapy as well as online psychiatry and medication management services for adolescents, teens, and young adults who need extensive care. Clients must reside in those states to sign up for our virtual IOP.
