"My best friend posted a bunch of pictures with some of our friends, but I wasn't included! My boyfriend is pressuring me to take certain pictures and is mad when I say no! I'm starting to fall behind in my classes and its stressing me out! I don't want to turn my phone off because I might miss something and it wakes me up all night." Friends, bully's, social media, time management, sports, family... Why is this happening to me? HELP!!!
These are a few consistent issues that I have worked with in all my years of being a therapist. I began my career in education and then decided to change directions to seek a career in individual and school counseling. I was seeing so many kids struggle with issues that extended far beyond the typical academic problems and realized how important it is to help them readjust their thinking and rebuild their personal self concept. I work predominately from a cognitive-behavioral approach, although I also use mindful based cognitive-behavioral therapy to help your child manage their breathing and learn relaxation skills. I also work from a person-centered, positive psychology and solutions-focused approach.
I know that getting teens to go to a counseling appointment can be difficult which is why online counseling is such a positive solution. Technology and teens naturally fit together so this is the perfect example of meeting your child in the middle! I would love to help your teenager grow and develop in a more fulfilling way, develop positive coping skills, eliminate negative coping skills and grow to love themselves more. Please contact me if I can help!

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for (Cheryl) Austenfeld. We don't pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with Teen Counseling might be different.
She’s amazing!! Love working with her, she’s super responsive and my daughter absolutely adores her already. She gives real world strategies to cope, and is supportive and understanding of teens.
Diahnn is just an amazing person, that has so much patience and understanding for people. She is someone you want to talk to when you're feeling down or go through life difficulties. She always supports you and find great things about you that you didn't even consider. She's loving and kind and teaches you how to be kind to yourself. It's such a confidence booster, it fills you up with hope that you can achieve all those things that you were afraid of even starting. She helped me through my post partum depression, my occupational anxieties and stresses of motherhood. After 3 years of therapy I don't think I would be the person I am today without Diahnn. Most importantly for the first time in my life I am proud of the person I am. I cannot thank Diahnn enough!
Where to begin. It makes me grateful, amazed and immensely joyous that God and especially Jesus ever brought me to Cheryl - especially on my first match with a therapist through teencounseling.com. She was an immensely helpful and kind and loving and generous therapist, and just full of genuine care and listening. She was able to hold space for us in a way that exceeded all expectations, and it was such a pleasure to be allowed to speak with her each week. She was like a therapist and a best friend all at once. Thank you Cheryl, thank you God and thank you universe for bringing us together! :) ❤️❤️❤️ All the best to Cheryl always and anyone who ever has the immense pleasure of talking with her.

C.Diahnn Austenfeld is a warm and cheerful therapist. She has been a really important support for me in down moments but also in good moments to help me move on.
A wonderful counselor! Very good at addressing my needs. 10/10 would recommend!
She is the sweetest person. Highly professional. I am very thankful for her support. The best counselor for me!
Diahnn is extremely understanding and caring, I couldn’t recommend her enough.
C. Diahnn Austenfeld is one amazing professional, it has being a great experience talking to her, even being in a different country and time zone, she's very quick to respond and very easy to talk to. She is helpful and respectful to my concerns and anything I feel the need to discuss, I could never ask for a better counselor.
Diahnn is an all-around amazing counselor! She helped me through so much and she's so patient and encouraging. I definitely recommend her.
Diahnn has been an absolutely amazing support and resource for me over the last year or so. I came to her with some relatively serious and long term issues and she took the time to really understand me, why I was experiencing the issues I had, and has been able to help me overcome those, teach me new strategies and coping mechanisms and change my perspective and thinking. I travel a lot for work and would not have been able to tackle my issues if I had to visit a therapist in an office. I will probably always be a work in progress but I am a much more stable and happy one thanks to Diahnn. Thank you!
Diahnn is such a great listener with excellent insight.
Diahnn has helped me very much and I would like to thank her for being so patient, understanding, and helping me overcome many negative emotions and to make positive plans for my future. She is so encouraging and nurturing. I cannot thank her enough
She did an excellent job helping my daughter navigate a period of PTSD after a traumatic event. Highly recommend!
Diahann is an extremely capable counselor who takes the time to understand the issues at hand and develops a pragmatic approach to finding solutions. She is compassionate and empathetic, with a sunny disposition which makes her a joy to interact with. I would highly recommend Diahnn.
Talking to her is easy, comforting and feels safe.
She is an amazing human being. She will help you and- won’t judge you. I feel great because of her, and I wish everyone have someone like her to help them out.
Diahnn has been such a huge help to me. She is patient, insightful, kind and supportive. She made me look at things from a different perspective and made me feel like she was truly invested in my success. I feel very fortunate that I was able to work with her.
Friendly, approachable, understanding and realistic.
Diahnn is one of a kind. She is kind, caring, and very enthusiastic to help. Despite the distance, she is there to support and encourage. Not once has she missed an appointment or not replied to a text. If you need a shoulder to lean on, she’s your best bet.
She's a really great person and a great counselor, She helps me see some things in a different way and always encourage me to do better and to keep hope
