Teen Counseling lets you connect with a licensed counselor who is specialized in helping teens like you. Whenever you need and wherever you are, just text your counselor or jump on a video or phone call. Your counselor is always here to help you thrive!
HOW DO I START?
- Invite your parent to sign up. They fill out a consent form for you (required by law)
- Once your parent subscribes, you will be matched with a licensed therapist and invited to your own confidential counseling room
- The therapist will communicate with you on the Teen Counseling app using text, phone, and video
WHY DO I NEED PARENTAL CONSENT?
As required by law, a parent or legal guardian must fill out a consent form before you can receive online counseling services.
HOW DOES COUNSELING WORK?
You and your counselor will get your own secure “room”. This will be your private place to communicate day or night, 24/7. You can access this room from any internet connected device, wherever you are. Your parent will not have access to this room.
You can write about yourself, the things going on in your life, ask questions and discuss the challenges you’re facing. Your counselor will login to the same room and respond with feedback, insights and guidance.
Together you’ll work towards making a positive change in your life, accomplishing your goals and overcoming your troubles.
IS WHAT I SHARE WITH MY COUNSELOR PRIVATE?
You can talk to your counselor about anything, but there are a few things that they would be required to share with either your parents or other adults. If you share any of the following issues with your counselor, they would have to break confidentiality for your protection or the protection of others:
• If you are seriously contemplating severely harming yourself or someone else.
• If you share with your counselor that you are being abused or neglected, or know of another individual under 18 who is being abused or neglected.
• If you share with your counselor that you know of an elderly person who is being abused or neglected.
Please consult with your counselor about what kind of information and updates your parent(s) may get regarding your work with the counselor.

SO THANKFUL FOR THIS APP
I’ve never written a review before but it frustrates me that there are so many bad reviews on this! I have been using this since October of 2018 - about 7 months ago. At that time, there was a LOT of bad controversy about better help after Shane dawson was sponsored by them. This made me skeptical, but I felt inclined to at least try it for myself anyways after watching a video with a in depth good review on it.
I was in the worst mindset I had ever been when I began consoling. The lady I got paired with was a perfect match right away. She’s quite responsive and I feel there’s a mutual trust. Before this I was terrified to do therapy young because my sister had a terrible experience at a nearby center. I couldn’t be more happy to do therapy online. I genuinely look forward to my sessions. She helped get me out of a really bad place.
Yet another let down by money hungry “professionals”
I set our profile up for my daughter using the website. It was recommended on a parenting podcast, and I’ve been wanting to get my 16-year-old some professional help, but she is involved in so many things (high school, vocational school, the after school clinicals for her training 2 nights a week-granted , they’re optional, but necessary to complete the program , and she works 20-25 hours/week). So we really something that would work around her schedule. We’ve done in person counseling before, but that was before she became so busy. Now it would be next to impossible to get her to and from appointments. I was told that they would send me an email or text message one day before billing my account. I didn’t intend on committing until I had done a little more research. My own fault for putting my banking information down I guess. Anyways, go to my online banking app... and what do you know?!?!?!!! They’ve already taken the $65 from my account. No big deal. We just won’t pay a bill on time. Or I’ll reschedule my oil change. Maybe we’ll just not eat a couple days. If that’d been all the $ in my account, I would be completely screwed. Hopefully, they will take my request for a refund seriously. Judging from other reviews, I’m not going to get my hopes up.
very annoyed and disappointed
I have never before written a review for anything but I am just so annoyed that I need to. I am a teen who was super excited to finally meet my counselor and finally just start talking to someone professionally. I filled out the whole questionaire, my mom set up the payments on a Tuesday afternoon. I matched with a counselor, whom I read her whole bio and I was super excited to get to start working with because she seemed like a perfect match. A couple of days go by and she has not reached out to me in anyway. My mom, confused emails her and she says that “she is not taking in any new clients and will get us set up with a new counselor asap.” My mom then replies back with a little bit of feedback saying that the program should only set teens up with counselors that are available. She replies that she forgot to turn her availability off and that it is her fault and again would get me setup with someone asap. It has been days, with still nothing changing. My mom has paid for a full week with me having no counselor. I am very disappointed and annoyed.
