Meet Luz*. At age 15, came to CGC full of anger and rage. She was ALWAYS angry and constantly yelling and swearing at her parents and teachers and getting in trouble for her behavior. Luz’s parents brought her to CGC because they were worried about her and her harsh reactions to those around her. Through weekly sessions with her therapist, Luz explored past traumas she had experienced at home which she identified as the root of her anger. Luz and her therapist worked together to discover ways to cope with her anger and intense reactions when they occurred. She was also able to change schools, put coping strategies into practice and she now has healthier relationships with her parents, teachers and her friends. Luz completed therapy when she felt confident in her ability to cope in calm and respectful ways.
