It feels like overnight she changed into this anxious, depressed, and moody teenager that you can’t seem to reach.
She isn’t opening up to you as much anymore, and rarely does she willingly spend time with you and your family. Her responses to your questions are short and often you feel like nothing you say is right.
She has stopped showing interest in extracurriculars that she once loved, and perhaps even her grades are starting to drop. Her friendships at school seem to be turbulent. One day everything is sunshine and roses and the next your daughter is telling you she wants to change schools because nobody likes her.
You wonder if she is struggling with anxiety or depression, or if her moods are just normal adolescent behavior. You don’t want to immediately put her on medication, but none of the books or approaches you’ve been researching seem to be making any difference.

Customized One-On-One Counseling for Teens Adolescent
Teen Girl Counseling Nashville, TN
Our mission is to help your daughter decrease feelings of anxiety, loneliness, and depression- and help instill feelings of empowerment, resiliency, and positive self-worth.
At Replenish Her Counseling, we work hard to create an environment where teens can show up exactly as they are, and 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:
- Sand Tray Therapy
- Walk and Talk Therapy
- Animal Assisted Therapy
- Board Game
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, and 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.
Common Goals in Teen Girl Counseling
Our Commitment to you, the parent/care provider.
We do not believe that adolescent change can most effectively happen solely between the teen and therapist alone. For a teen to thrive, it takes both the shaping of their internal world, as well as their external world (family, school, friends).
It is a priority for us to ensure our teens feel that their space is respected and private. But we also create transparency to our teens, that we strive to keep a communication line open with our parents/care providers in order to best support their therapeutic goals.
We place an emphasis on joining parents of our teens in a collaborative approach.
This collaboration looks like:
- Parenting Intakes for clients that are 15 or younger. These intakes occur at the very first appointment between parent and the assigned teen clinician. Click here to learn more about what happens at this appointment.
