The impact is more than in statistics and factoids, it’s in feelings and emotions. It’s in our families, with our friends and in our communities. Having a mental disorder should not be any different than experiencing a physical illness. And it doesn’t have to be; you can help make a difference.

At Embrace New Life, we consider the teen in their social context – as they relate to their families and themselves. Teen counselors at Embrace New Life will initially meet with the custodial parents (divorced parents must fax a recent copy of divorce decree) and/or step parent(s) to help you identify your goals and determine the best treatment plan. Embrace New Life practices family systems therapy. We help real families find real solutions. Call us today! 972-292-7092
Embrace New Life Counseling & Consulting (???) therapists utilize evidence-based interventions (interventions that are proven to be efficacious in research and practice) to treat a variety of adolescent concerns. Our goal is to work with a family to promote the health and well-being of each teen.
Families who are working through the unique stressors of divorce often find that their teens can greatly benefit from therapy. These parents should know prior to scheduling their teen for counseling that a copy of the divorce decree is required for clinicians to start working with their teen.
Embrace New Life therapists seek to work closely with parents as a means to provide support to the entire family. Parents are often referred to Embrace New Life by teachers, administrators, SROs, psychiatrists and pediatricians. Our goal is to provide quality psycho-education and guide parents as their children grow in the therapy process. Consultation will often include helping parents structure the home environment in such a way that supports what the child is learning in therapy.
