Jenny's Male Teen Case Study
Johnny was a 12 year old in 6th grade. His parents were in the middle of a contentious divorce, and he told his mom that he needed to see a counselor because he was confused by the things his parents were telling him and didn’t know who to believe. In Jenny’s office, Johnny was able to safely share his anxiety and fear regarding his parents’ dysfunctional dynamics, sort through his experiences, and have a firmer understanding of what he was craving - stability. Eventually Johnny choose to stay with the parent that provided him the stability he had been needing for years. Johnny learned to trust himself and his experiences, as well as speak up and voice his needs.
