Adolescent Boys’ Therapy for Nashville, TN and the Surrounding Areas

Helping depressed teen boys move from feeling awkward and rejected to confident and connected.

It breaks your heart to see your adventurous and confident son move into his teen years feeling rejected by others and out of place. 

He seems sad and angry all the time, but he doesn’t ever want to talk about what is bothering him. You notice that he has a hard time making and keeping friends but you’re not sure why. 

It is a struggle to get him motivated to do homework, go to school, or do chores around the house. When you set boundaries and give consequences, he withdraws from you further. You’re worried about how much time he spends playing video games or just staring at his phone

You want him to transition successfully out of high school and into adulthood, but you are at a loss on how to get him motivated and focused. 

You wonder if he is struggling with depression, or if his moods are just normal adolescent behavior. None of the books or approaches you’ve been researching seem to be making any difference, and you’re at a loss on how to help.

We can help

At Replenish Counseling, we know that working with teen boys is a unique form of therapy. 

In a culture where boys are often taught to suppress their emotions, push them aside, and avoid discussing topics, seeking counseling can seem intimidating and contradictory to what they perceive as acceptable behavior. 

This is why establishing a therapeutic environment that fosters comfort is incredibly important. We seek to create a space that is devoid of expectations and judgments, allowing teen boys to open up at a pace that feels non-threatening to them. 

Our therapists engage with teen boys from a creative approach. We use board games, role playing dice games, video games, and animal assisted therapy as ways to turn down the tension in the therapy office. Sometimes, we just throw a ball back and forth.

We also have the unique privilege of seamlessly transitioning from individual sessions to family or group therapy within our office. This enhances the impact and progress made for teen boys and their families.

Customized One-On-One Counseling for Teens

Adolescent Boy Counseling Nashville, TN

Our mission is to help your son decrease feelings of sadness, loneliness, and rejection — and help instill feelings of confidence, resiliency, and motivation.

At Replenish Counseling, we work hard to create an environment where teens can show up exactly as they are, and we help them find ways to stop harmful thinking or behavior patterns.

We do this through speaking their language. We love to utilize creative and expressive therapies-based approaches; because not all teens are great at putting words to their feelings and experiences.

We love to utilize:

  • Body Movement 
  • Sand Tray Therapy
  • Board Games
  • Animal Assisted Therapy
  • Role Playing Dice Games
  • Sports
  • Music
  • Art
  • Journaling
  • Yoga

These tools are first used to help teens feel comfortable in opening up, and from there, increase their ability to be self-aware, self-reflective, and communicate their thoughts and feelings into words.

This increase in self-awareness is then used to help teens become intentional around the choices they make, the relationships they grow, and the way they respond to their environment. We seek to help teens live a life driven by their personal values, not a life driven by impulse and reaction.

The main therapeutic models we work from with our teens are Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Self-Compassion Focused Therapy, and Mindfulness Based Approaches.
