So from the ages of 11-19. I have a great deal of experience and enjoy working with them. I also have a wealth of materials with which to help them. I have always had a good sense of humor depending on the client.. I also have had experience helping parents to live more easily. with your teen. I have the book and agree with the approach, of Charlie Appelstein, MSW who authored the widely known book, No Such Thing As a Bad Kid.

We just started working with Dr. Farrell and have only had one session together so far. However, I have also had an individual session with him so far as well. He is very knowledgeable and understanding and we are actually both pretty excited to continue having our couples sessions with him! We've tried out a few different counselors so far but none have really seemed to "click" or connect with us as well as Dr. Farrell. We are grateful for his help!
