You know your kid is smart enough to do well in high school and get into a good college, but he just doesn’t seem to care. Every time you try to talk to him about goals or motivation, he tunes you out and you either give up or start a fight. You don’t know what’s going on with him these days.

JC Shakespeare has a gift of coming along side young people so that they can trust him.  After a few meetings they begin to express important issues that he can then begin to address.  Although he is process oriented you really feel like he truly cares for his clients and I believe, shares an honest empathy for and with them.  I feel like we will always be friends.
