For Clinicians

Clinician Spotlight: Theresa Boen, Ed. S.

September 6, 2021, 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.
