If your worried about your teenager, and are having trouble talking to them about your concerns, a counselor can help. Your teen may be having issues with peers or their self image that are hard for them to talk to you about. As a professional counselor, with years of experience working with troubled teens, I can create a safe and confidential space for your teen to open-up. Initially manageable teen problems, left unchecked, can eventually result in more damaging academic, social, physical and legal problems. If you have noticed a marked negative change in your teenager’s personality, grades, peer group, personal interests….there may be a problem. If your teenager shows signs of depression (examples: withdrawn, tearful, low energy, excessive sleeping, irritability, change in appetite, loss of interest in activities/people they used to enjoy, suicidal talk) please call me for a free phone consultation (615) 415-8884. Mental health problems, like all health problems, are best treated early.
