Why Online Therapy in Texas?
You feel the tension rising inside, and work tirelessly to quiet your anxious mind. On some level you realize that you really need to seek help, but who has the time? Therapists often want to see you weekly, which means blocking off drive time in addition to the hour long appointment. You certainly don’t have time for that kind of commitment.
Life’s normal routine can sometimes be chaotic, stressful, or overwhelming. Or, maybe you just don’t have the motivation to even get out of the house. If your schedule is busy, you feel more at ease being in the comfort of a familiar place, or you need the convenience of talking to someone when and where you want to talk to them, then online therapy may be the perfect fit for you.
The world may feel chaotic and unpredictable, but your home doesn’t have to. We meet where you are, online, and support you in finding balance, reducing anxiety, and improving happiness at home.
What is Online Therapy?
Traditionally therapy is thought of as being in an office, sitting on a couch, and talking to a person siting across from you.
Instead, imagine being able to sit in your favorite chair, with your favorite coffee mug in hand, from the comfort of your own home.
Or, finding an hour of self care time from the convenience of your office.
In addition to in-person sessions, Connections Child and Family Center offers online therapy services for residents of Texas. Our skilled clinicians provide the same high quality of care whether we are working with you in person or virtually. We know how difficult scheduling is and want to make it easy for you to get help.
How Does Virtual Therapy Work?
We meet online, through a secure video platform. You can meet us anywhere (in Texas) you have internet access, even in your car if home is too crowded.
Our therapists use HIPAA compliant technology and will send you an access link that only you will have. We aim at maintaining the highest levels of confidentiality.
As family therapists, we specialize in the needs of the whole family.

Online Child Therapy Sessions in Texas
We also love working with kids and teens and have found a lot of creative ways to engage them online. Most kids are already quite familiar with technology, so they will find it easy to adapt. Online therapy also puts kids at more ease as they can enjoy the session from a place where they feel most safe and comfortable. They can easily connect with us from their favorite chair, at their desk, or even from bed.
Online therapy is recommended for children 4 years of age and older, but we do offer family sessions for all ages including children younger than 4 years of age. These family sessions allow parents and children to participate and are a great way to get parents involved in the process.
Play Therapy Online
It is even possible for our therapists to conduct play therapy online. Using art, games, journaling, and imaginative play, as experienced play therapists, we can give your child stability and a safe space to share their struggles using their natural language of play. Kids enjoy playing games with their therapists and exploring our virtual playroom. We teach them coping strategies that will help them with anxiety and behavioral issues. Kids enjoy the connection and attention leading to happier, more easygoing kids. Parents love the structure and improvement in behavior that it provides.
Virtual Couples Counseling in Texas
Couples also find that they make faster progress when meeting from the comfort of home and get real quickly with their struggles. This is a perfect time to shore up your marriage. Our couples therapists can help you set boundaries, create new rituals for connection, and improve communication.
Parenting Support Online in Texas
We work frequently with parents to develop schedules, routines, expectations, and reinforcement systems that work. Meeting in your home is a great opportunity to work on in-home behaviors in real time and see what really happens outside the office.
Then, we can easily tailor treatment to your family’s specific needs. You could feel closer, more connected, and have kids that easily cooperate with your rules and expectations.
Online Teen Therapy in Texas
Teens easily connect online, though online socialization isn’t nearly enough for their brains that thrive on regular connection. Online therapy helps teens set & stick to healthy routines, avoid procrastination, improve feelings of happiness, & increase confidence with new coping skills.
