 Managing overwhelming emotion

It is not something we want to believe is possible, suicidality in teens is a scary reality in the North Atlanta area. When a teen talks about death, dying, not wanting to be alive it is a serious situation that needs immediate attention. Many say "they are just wanting attention." However research tells us that suicidal thoughts are a result of overwhelming emotional pain and a real or perceived feeling of being alone or a burden to others. At Johns Creek and Alpharetta Counseling we are trained to assess the level of risk when a teen is having suicidal ideation, we can help the teen feel comfortable and understood, and help create real and practical skills to manage the overwhelming emotion and perception of feeling alone. Our counselors believe that support and inclusion with parents and family is an important aspect of healing and recovery from suicidal ideation and self harm





While counseling sessions with teens are absolutely confidential, we utilize a team approach when the risk is high. We strive to help each teen to create and utilize a support network. We also can help parents and family learn how to be a positive support- sometimes our good intentions end up not working. Call us to learn more and to schedule your first appointment

Moving into Adulthood

College Planning



Preparing for college and going to college holds expectations
of fun and independence. However, many in this stage struggle with the
adjustment to the freedom of young adult life. Many young adults experience:


**Depression and anxiety for the first time

**Overwhelmed feelings with making life decisions such
as career choices and romantic relationships that can impact them the rest of
their life

 **Confusion in knowing which direction to go and which
major to choose

 **Stress and can stumble into using unhealthy
habits as coping skills such as substances and sex


Our counselors at JCAC are trained to help you discover
yourself and help you decide a healthy path. Rather than leading you a certain
direction, we are trained to help you discover what direction is right for you.
We can help make ‘adulting’ easier. Call use to learn more and schedule an
appointment.
