Home/About this blog

Families are our passion! I, Megan, do most the writing for this blog, and am a therapist in St. Paul, MN. Other therapists at Sentier respond to blog posts, though I write most of the content. We work primarily with teenagers, families, and college-aged young adults. We use this blog to share parenting tips, information about family therapy and adolescent/teen counseling, and many other things. Much of this blog is dedicated to teenagers and parenting teenagers because we spend a great deal of time helping teens and families of teens. I typically write about topics that can’t be ignored in our practice. We can’t ignore these topics because many of you (parents and teens) come to us to discuss these issues.

Please check back periodically if these topics are of interest to you. We’d love to hear your thoughts about the topics I write about or requests that you might have for our next blog post. Please email me directly if you have a subject area that you would like me to blog about: msigmon[at]sentiertherapy[dot]com

  1. I have a Grandson who lives with an abusive Father in a MN suburb near you. He wants to come down to Florida to live with me, but he has anger issues and is on anxiety medication. I feel he needs some good professional help first. He is also very depressed. Please tell me more about your services.

  2. Hi Megan,
    My parents were fighting about our financial statements just a few minutes ago, and my mom is crying in her room and my dad went to bed early to his separate room. Their fight started yesterday evening when my mom got her shipment of jewelry she ordered. My dad gets picky on gags type of thing, so of course he started giving my mom lecture, and within minutes, the lecture had escalated and turned into a fight about how my mom had no respect for my dad. Now, my parents are getting pretty close to retirement and my dad is starting to get more careful about what we spend since he lost his job a few months ago. My dad is still in his room, and he refused to eat what my mom made. He didn’t say it put loud, but I knew when they were fighting in my dad’s room that my dad didn’t eat dinner cuz my mom made it. My mom is trying to tell my dad that she is not trying to pick fights. But my dad interrupts her in the middle, or he dosen’t listen at all. My mom was saying that we should go to our home country (I won’t specific online for safety reasons) but then I was acting stupid and I didn’t think when I was saying this, but I said we wouldn’t have enough money, and I kept bringing my dad into it. I feel terrible now for acting marriage counselor. Our financial issues are fine, it’s just that we aren’t so sure about my brother’s education, which isn’t going so well…so my dad wants enough money in the end to secure a good retirement plan, security plan, and if needed…money for my brother…

    Help me out with this one, Megan!!!!
    P.S. I am a pre teen, so I can’t really make any huge descisions!!

  3. Megan I am really sorry to bother you but I need reply as soon as possible!!!!!! The fight has started again!!! I don’t know what to do its overwhelming!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • Hello,

      I think you are right that you need to try and stay out of their fights. I know this is hard; it sounds like you hear their fights regularly. I am sorry that this is so stressful, and you deserve to not be involved in their stress.

      I hope this helps. If it does not, I would encourage you to talk to an outside adult that you trust (counselor, school counselor, pastor, etc.).

      megan
