This project will examine the feasibility and acceptability of motivational interviewing (MI) and cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) interventions delivered via telehealth delivered treatment (Teletx). The goal is to refine the interventions to improve acceptability and feasibility and collect preliminary data for a fully powered randomized controlled trial (RCT) in the future. In addition to therapy sessions, participants that are enrolled in the study will complete surveys prior to, during, and after treatment.
