Hello! I'm Emmy and I remember being a teenager. Most people look back with dread, but I don't. I won't go so far as saying it was "fun," but I remember it being a huge mix of wonderful and terrible things all at once. On one hand you're excited to be (almost) an adult. On the other hand, you're terrified and not sure how. In some ways, you want freedom, but in other ways, you're crippled by choices. You have friends and do fun things, but then again, they may not be the friends you want or the things you wish you were doing.
In short, teenage years are marked by conflict. This, in my opinion, is not a bad thing but it can become an overwhelming challenge. That's where I relate and that's where I can help. Maybe you have a child who feels lost. Maybe they aren't acting like their old self. Maybe they seem hurt or sad. Maybe something bad has happened to them. Or maybe they just need help getting back on the right track. The good news is, I can help! I remember what is was like to be lost, and I know how to get back on the right track. Please, don't wait. If you have any inkling at all that your teen may need help... call now!
I look forward to meeting with you, and helping your teenager set goals, feel better, and discover who they were made to be.
