I worked in the mid-80's as and adolescent counselor through Charles River Hospital on a locked inpatient unit for teens. My job for the last 19 years (Just retired) was as a School Adjustment Counselor for the Gardner, MA Public Schools. I worked primarily with high school age, and middle school age students. 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. "Understanding and Responding to the Challenging Behavior of Troubled Children and Youth. "
I would be most happy to engage with your teen. Gene Farrell, LMHC

Dr. Farrell is a fantastic therapist and human being. I am very grateful for his service!
Eugene listens to us, he responds ASAP and he shares suggestions for how to approach and manage situations with our teenager in better ways.
Gene is professional l, personal,.and obviously cares. He's offered me great insight in a short period of time and I look forward to working with him.
Eugene was extremely helpful in my situation and would definitely recommend him. He is very kind and has good advice to give.
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!
Gene is a great therapist. I can tell he has been doing this for quite sometime. He listens and offers some good suggestions given my circumstances. Really like working with him!
He is a great counselor. The best I’ve had. Helpful and a good listener.
