Clinician Spotlight: Theresa Boen, Ed. S.

For Schools

, By Jenny Barker

Theresa Boen, Ed.S., attended Anderson University in Indiana for her undergraduate degree followed by the University of Northern Colorado for graduate work. Before working as a school psychologist, she had a varied career, working in law enforcement and probation. She worked with high risk family and youth for a number of years, and taught in community college.

Theresa Boen was a PresenceLearning Care Network provider from fall, 2020 to May, 2021. Theresa is now a clinical account coordinator at PresenceLearning. This interview was conducted before she took on that role with PresenceLearning. 

Can you tell us a little about how you collaborate with teachers and other school staff members?

I collaborate via meetings and emails. I also use questionnaires as part of student evaluations. I am part of the Response to Intervention (RtI) process in both of my districts. I make myself available for additional virtual meetings when asked, as I am part of their team!

Teachers complete the same questionnaires that we used in a direct service model. They’re published by the companies that help psychologists look at mostly social, emotional, behavioral, and sometimes executive function work. So those questionnaires come through a membership platform that school psychologists typically pay for and manage on their own. 

What advice would you give districts considering online therapy?

I would highly encourage online therapy as it provides quality services and professionals who deeply care about students. Online therapy is a way to bridge the gap when you have a shortage of professionals or long-term absence.
