Troy loves working with adolescents. “I believe that they are insightful and need positive connections with people that care and are often more honest than adults,” he explained. “Adolescents can find solutions to their struggles if they have guidance from an adult that they can trust. The younger that people get help, the more quality of life you can help them attain.”
