Boys to Men: Surviving Adolescent Moods


Can a weekly workshop help boys ages 12-18 learn appropriate emotional expression and coping skills in just one summer? At Lifeologie Counseling Midlothian, the answer is yes! We're looking for a few good young men to join us Tuesdays at 5pm from July 9-30 to learn how to take control of difficult emotions that can impact our moods, thoughts, and how we interact with other people.

Teenage boys. They nod, they grunt, they take out the garbage when we ask. But they aren't exactly experts in expressing their emotions. Let them learn safe & healthy ways to blow off steam and communicate their feelings from two guys who have been there: Shaun Richardson, LPC-A, and Master's Level Intern Eduardo "Jed" Aquillo. 

Together, this dynamic duo brings an approachable, evidence-based approach that teaches young men how to identify various emotions, along with coping skills for navigating feelings and moods as they mature. 

Come ready to explore, share and express yourself in an encouraging atmosphere. Snacks provided!

Shaun Richardson

Shaun recognizes that everyone comes to therapy with their own unique stories, issues, and concerns. Whether dealing with stress, anxiety, depression, grief, or life transitions, clients can feel confident that Shaun can help guide them to being their best selves. When he is not figuring out the puzzle pieces of the mind, Shaun loves reading, listening to music, watching movies, enjoying sports, and traveling!

With an empathetic approach and a goal to build a safe and warm space, he works with children, adolescents, and adults with the supervision of Mary Helen Snowden, LPC, at Lifeologie Counseling Midlothian. Jed enjoys hanging out with his friends and family, going to the gym, listening to live music, and exploring the outdoors!
