As a parent, school administrator, social worker or psychologist, you’re keenly aware of how devastating the last couple years have been on the mental health of teens; anxiety, depression, substance use, self-harm and suicide rates have all skyrocketed as quarantines, remote learning and the fear and uncertainty related to Covid have led to unprecedented levels of isolation, screen-time and mental health disorders. Our teens need help—and our team of licensed social workers, psychiatrists and nurse practitioners are available to help them.
We’ve developed a specialized program custom-tailored for the issues facing high school students in today’s world who are struggling with anxiety, depression, substance use, self-image, excessive screen-time and behavioral disorders.
I’m a psychologist and former Clinical Professor at Stony Brook Medicine in NY and the CEO and Chief Clinical Officer at Omega Recovery here in Austin. I’m also the author of the best-selling book “Glow Kids”, the seminal book on screen-time (social media; gaming) and the clinical impact on kids. I’ve also provided mental health services to school districts around the country and have worked with over 2,000 teens in the last 18 years. As one of the country’s top thought leaders on mental health and teens, I’ve appeared on Good Morning America, CNN, FOX & Friends, 20/20 and NPR. But perhaps even more importantly, I’m a parent of twin teenage boys and personally understand the challenges that our teens today are facing.
In addition, Omega Recovery offers a full continuum of care. The following additional services are available to you:
We understand that insurance coverage may be the deciding factor in what treatment options you can consider. If we are unable to work with your insurance we will promptly assist you with a referral to a quality program that does.
