Being a teen can be so hard! There’s the constant pull between what society thinks their role should be, what they think their role should be, and pressure from friends to fit in. Add technology to the mix and we have a whole lot of teens struggling with claiming their strengths, loving themselves as they are, and being confident enough in themselves to thrive. Whether your teen could use more individual support to address issues of confidence, body image, and self-esteem building OR could benefit from being in self-esteem and empowerment groups, our teen team at CFE has the knowledge and skills to help your teen shine!
MEET JESSICA PAIST, LMFT
Hi! I'm Jessica, the Owner and Clinical Director of The Center for Family Empowerment.
I specialize in supporting pre-teen and teen girls as they navigate the challenges of being a girl in today's world. I have extensive experience working with families, which has given me powerful skills to support change within family systems. I am trained in Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) and my work in a high-risk teen therapeutic program gave me extensive knowledge in supporting high-risk teens.
MEET JOSIE MCCALL, LSW
I am a therapist and licensed social worker. I specialize in working with children and teens that are struggling to feel confident in their own skin and have trouble fitting in with peers. I have a passion for working with children and teens that are socially isolated, shy, and have low self-esteem. Empowering them to shine as the amazing person they are is a central part of the work we will do together.
MEET LINDSAY BUTLER, LPC
Hi! I’m Lindsay. I specialize in working with teens and adults struggling with stress management, anxiety, depression, and low self-esteem. In my work with clients, we explore negative thinking and how it impacts mood and behavior, learn healthy coping skills to help regulate and tolerate tough emotions, and build a strong sense of self that is empowered and capable of success.
MEET AMY MARLOW- MACOY, LPC
I understand what it’s like to feel utterly overwhelmed by the problems in your life, to feel like you might drown in the tide of someone else’s needs and expectations. I want to help you with that. Clients who have benefitted most from working with me often describe themselves as the peacekeepers, mediators, or “fix-it” people within their circles.
I am passionate about helping you learn to balance taking care of yourself with caring for your loved ones. I currently offer individual and group therapy for adults as well as individual therapy for teen girls. If you’re sick of being pulled in too many directions, feeling not good enough, and feeling guilty for wanting to take care of yourself, give me a call.
