Is your teen often withdrawn, depressed, or angry? Failing at school, acting out at home, causing you sleepless nights? I know it's hard to see your child hurting when they refuse to tell you why. You fear the worst. Parenting was easier when they were small. Kids today are dealing with their feelings in ways that create more problems - self harm, drugs, bullying, sexual pressures are all too common. You're afraid, and I'm here help your teen and you deal with the difficult emotions, unhealthy choices spurred by peer influences or poor judgment. Is your marriage suffering?
Do you have a high insurance deductible? Counseling can be more affordable than you think. I offer low cost, cash, and insurance HSA debit payment sessions. Solutions are possible for the problems of defiant behavior, family conflict, attitude adjustment and other issues that are making your family miserable. There is hope.
Call today for an appointment. I offer mediation on parenting plan disputes. I also administer career counseling tests for college and adult career choices, and a variety of behavioral assessment tests. Appointments are available by phone, evenings and weekends. I look forward to helping you live a happy and successful life.

New Life Counseling Services PLLC's groups

A Home Within Foster Child Counseling

Every foster child deserves to have a healthy, stable relationship with at least one caring adult. Being shuffled from one home to the next and bounced around in the system, foster youth at best struggle to trust adults and at worst often suffer from multiple psychiatric, behavioral, and substance use disorders. By helping these kids and teens to break the cycle of chronic loss and address childhood traumas, therapy is often a transformative experience that reduces anxiety, stress, dissociate states, and many other symptoms - ultimately enabling them to become healthy, productive members of their communities.
