We can connect your teen with licensed mental health professionals who are trained to provide online coaching and counseling sessions.

Individual Coaching vs Individual Counseling

Individual coaching and counseling are two ways to work with adolescents to achieve their goals and address their emotional and psychological issues. Coaching and counseling have some differences. Individual coaching is more structured and focuses on setting and achieving goals. Counseling is more about addressing emotional and psychological issues using various therapeutic modalities.

The main difference between a counselor and a coach is the focus of their work. Counselors are trained to diagnose and treat mental illness, and their primary goal is to identify and alleviate symptoms. Coaches, on the other hand, help people set and achieve goals by providing motivation and encouragement. While there is some overlap between the two roles, with counselors sometimes emphasizing clients strengths and coaches sometimes addressing obstacles to goal achievement, the fundamental difference lies in the emphasis on symptom reduction versus goal attainment.

At the link, we offer both individual coaching and counseling to help your teen. Our online services remove proximity limitations, ensuring that all those in need have access. Our coaches are trained in evidence-based coaching techniques, including cognitive-behavioral coaching, mindfulness-based coaching, and dialectical behavior therapy coaching. Our counselors are licensed professionals trained in various therapeutic modalities to help address a wide range of mental health issues.

As a parent you want to see your teen succeed in life and have the tools to navigate through challenges.

Supporting a teenager through the unpredictable and tumultuous adolescent years can be tiring. Many parents have found that their teens face common struggles such as feeling hopeless about the future, dealing with relationship pressures, struggling to handle stress, and accepting themselves.

If this sounds familiar to you, know that you’re not alone, and there is support available the the link for both you and your teen.

Fortunately, our online coaching or counseling, through the link, can be a great way to help your teen overcome these challenges. By connecting with a professional counselor or coach, your teen can learn new skills to cope with stress, build healthy relationships, and improve their self-esteem. Online counseling or coaching is also more convenient than in-person sessions, as it eliminates the need for transportation and allows for flexible scheduling. Moreover, online counseling or coaching sessions are confidential, which can help to eliminate the stigma often associated with seeking mental health support. By working with a qualified mental health professional, your teen can get the support they need to thrive, and you can feel confident that you’re doing everything you can to help your teen succeed.

As a parent of a teenager, it’s normal to feel stressed and worried about their future.

You might find it difficult to connect with your teen and feel stuck in a negative cycle, constantly worrying about their mental health and ability to navigate adulthood successfully.

You’re not alone. Many parents share these concerns, and it’s important to remember that it takes a village to raise a teenager. That’s why we offer individualized services through the link. 

As a parent of a teen, you want the best for them and a strong relationship is key. But sometimes, it can feel like there is a missing link in your connection with your teen. That’s where individual counseling or coaching comes in. These services can help your teen learn productive communication skills, positive relationship building skills, emotion management, and whole self-wellness. By improving these important areas, your teen can develop the tools they need to navigate adolescence and build a strong connection with you. With the right support and guidance, individual counseling or coaching can be the missing link you need to improve your relationship with your teen and help them thrive.

As a parent, you want your teenager to live a productive and happy life. The four core areas that guide the services we provide through the link can help make that a reality.

Cultivating hope can improve your teen’s mental health by providing them with guidance and support to develop a positive outlook on life. Strong relationships with peers, family, and mentors can reduce the risk of mental health problems. At the link, we provide a safe and supportive community for your teen to connect individually with a counselor or coach.

Emotion management is a vital skill for everyone, but especially for teenagers who are navigating the ups and downs of adolescence. Our coaches are trained in evidence-based techniques, such as mindfulness and cognitive-behavioral therapy, to help your teen learn how to manage their emotions effectively. Lastly, whole-self awareness is about understanding and accepting all aspects of oneself. Our services through the link encourage self-reflection and growth to help your teen develop a healthy self-image and sense of identity.

You can ask your health care provider, and any other provider you choose, for a Good Faith Estimate before you schedule a service, or at any time during treatment.
