On site counseling consists of meeting the clients where they are located- be it the home or other location in the community, such as a school or place of employment.  This service is most beneficial for children and families because it places the counselor in the actual environment where the difficult feelings or challenging behaviors are most frequently occurring.  Some individuals or family members are resistant to the idea of meeting with a therapist in an office setting but are comfortable in his/her own natural environment.  It is a convenient option and clients may feel that they have more privacy because they are not seen in a waiting room.  

Please note that home-based services may not be suitable in every situation;  if it is determined that home-based services would not be appropriate for the client/counselor then other location alternatives will be discussed.
