Ask Tatiana: Difficulty Finding a Counselor in College Town

Dear Tatiana,

My daughter has been struggling with a variety of emotions while in college over the last 9 months. We have called multiple counselors that were recommended in her college town and no one is accepting new clients.


Dear Anonymous,

Here’s an upside to COVID, most clients now offer a HIPPA compliant telehealth platform. As long as your child is being seen by a therapist who is licensed in the state they are going to school, you have a lot more options. Here at Atlanta Specialized Care, we use the “Healthcare” version of “Zoom” for those clients who don’t want to or can’t be seen in person. Our therapists are licensed in Georgia and North Carolina. Technology has allowed us to widen out accessibility.


Good Luck,

Tatiana Matthews LPC
Atlanta Specialized Care
