Your child will feel heard, understood, & will leave each session with tangible actions he can take to improve.
Your son is definitely going through something. You're worried about the pre-teen, teen, or young adult in your life. He seems down, depressed, discouraged, but then just tunes out the world with his video games. He's anxious, dealing with pressure, school, friends, & he needs to actually face his struggles. He won't open up to you or other family members. He seems to be isolating more - you think he might have some addiction going on. He's not as interested in his usual activities. You're basically concerned about the direction of his life. What you really want is your kid to be happy, motivated, and moving in a good direction.
