Video game addiction, social awkwardness, low self-image, a rocky relationship with your kids or their teachers -- all these esteem-squashing challenges meet their match in the powerful fall lineup of new weekly counseling programs being offered by the Flower Mound-based Dr. Kay Trotter – Counseling Services.

“I’m excited to offer these specialized groups created for very targeted audiences,” said Dr. Kay Sudekum Trotter, PhD, LPC-S, RPT-S, NCC. “My team of interns and I focused on the biggest issues we see in our clients, and created highly interactive programs to meet and heal each challenge.”

GEM, or Growing Every Moment, is two on-going groups – one for teen girls ages 13 and up, and one for woman – to help participants feel empowered, self-aware and happier in every aspect of their lives. Journaling, guided meditation, art projects and self-care are among the resources Dr. Trotter will share with participants. The Women’s GEM begins Thursday Oct. 11, 12 - 1 p.m., and the Teen GEM starts Tuesday Oct. 9, 6:30 – 7:30 p.m. Both groups cost $200 per month.

PALS, or Playing and Learning Socially, helps youngsters ages 7 to 11 learn to make friends, handle conflicts peacefully, grow their self-confidence and enhance their communication skills and empathy for others. Role play, games, craft activities and positive reinforcement are just some of the resources Daniel Folmer and Shannon Raikes, both LPC-Interns, will be using in the group. The weekly sessions begin Saturday Oct. 6, 9-10:30 a.m., and end Dec. 15. The fee is $200 per month.

C-P-R, or Child Parent Relationship Parenting, is the next best thing to an official “Be the Best Parent You Can Be” manual. Tracie Posehn, LPC-Intern, will empower parents to regain control as a parent; help their children develop self-control; effectively discipline and limit inappropriate behavior and better understand their child’s emotional needs. The group starts Sept. 26 from 10-11:30 a.m. and ends Nov. 14. The fee is $200/month.

School Liaison educates parents about how to best support their children’s success in class. Learning how to effectively communicate with teachers and understanding how the education system works are just two of the transformational things parents will learn. Tracie Posehn, LPC-Intern, works individually with each family to create a results-driven plan. Call (214) 499-0369 for pricing information.

Over five million young people may be addicted to video tames. Internet Addiction ‘Gaming’ helps break the cycle by first identifying the source of the stressful situation that’s luring addicts to escape into a fantasy world of cyberspace. Daniel Folmer, Med, LPC-Intern has an undergraduate degree in rehabilitation studies, with a minor in addictions and a master’s in counseling. He will help participants turn off the games and get a real life, with healthier outlets to bring balance and happiness. Call (214) 499-0369 for pricing information.
