Interview with Dan Jurek – Being Present to Anxious Teenagers

In this episode Roy interviews Dan Jurek, LPC, LMFT, the founder and director of Pax Renewal Center for Individual, Couple and Family Therapy. Dan’s vast experience working with youth and young adults includes serving as a youth minister, teacher, spiritual director, school administrator, college dean and now therapist in private practice.

Dan describes some of the unique challenges he faced as a teen, and the adult who helped him see himself and walked with him to help him realize his potential. Roy and Dan discuss the role of faith in the lives of adults who work with teens, the necessity of doing our own inner work in order to be a “non-anxious presence” in the lives of the most stressed out and anxious generation in history.
