A terrifying truth: our girls are struggling like never before.
I read an article today that said our American Psychological Association (APA) has declared a mental health emergency for our kiddos under age 18.
I’m sure this comes as no surprise to you, and definitely not to us. Our phones are ringing off the hook with worried parents for their girls and teen girls, desperate for some assistance to help their daughters feel better and lessen their anxiety and stress.
While our hearts are breaking for our communities and our girls, we also feel honored that we are here to help!
One of the ways that we provide therapy at Empowered Connections very differently is that we really build a solid foundation of connection and understanding with not only our client (your daughter) but also with YOU, as their parents.
We know that right now you are frustrated and overwhelmed AF.
You are losing sleep, patience, and hair over this whole shit-show that is now manifesting itself right in your own living room.
You feel helpless and hopeless as you watch your daughter act out in ways she’s never done before.
Maybe her grades are slipping.
Maybe she’s not sleeping or eating the way she used to.
Maybe she’s actually verbalizing (lucky you!) how sad and miserable she is. How school sucks or how she has no motivation or desire to do much right now.
Maybe you’ve tried other therapists before and felt it didn’t go well or that your daughter didn’t get anything beneficial from it. It wasn’t a “good fit.”
So now you’re back to square one, wondering how your family is going to get through this crisis and wondering where you should go.
We are experts in this! Our therapists have been trained to work not only with your daughter but also with you, the parent. We recognize what happens at home is as important as what we talk about in our sessions.
That you as her parent, are just as worried and frustrated about life right now.
That you too need tools and tips to start helping your daughter feel better at home.
This is why we approach working with girls and teen girls, as what we call a family approach.
We work with you side-by-side to create a safe space for both you and your daughter and to give you ideas and tips on what to work on at home.
We will give you handouts if needed and we will give you as much education as you need to really understand where your daughter is emotionally and mentally.
Truthfully, we have seen firsthand that this is how a successful therapeutic journey is created and how healing and restoration can be achieved with our clients.
We believe at Empowered Connections that our special way of providing therapy to your daughter can be transformative. We are excited to help her achieve her goals and for you to feel confident and hopeful in us – your therapist.
That we SEE you and her.
That you are not in this alone!
From the time you call and speak to our incredible administrative goddess, to your first meeting with one of our therapists, you will feel loved and taken care of.
It’s what we do best after all.
Give us a call if you are needing extra support right now either for yourself (we have therapists who specialize in seeing adult women too) or if your daughter really needs it.
Or as always, you can self-schedule online here.
We look forward to serving you and becoming part of your tribe!
