Dr. Kevin Fall works with parents who have tried everything they know to help their challenging teens, but whose teens continue to struggle with problems and direction. Using a unique process unavailable anywhere else, Dr. Fall helps parents reconnect with their teens, rebuild trust and respect, and re-establish influence that will help transform their teen.
As a parent, Kevin was at the end of his rope. For six years he had watched his son, Austin, spiral out-of-control down a path of certain devastation. Everything Kevin tried in hopes of reaching and changing his son’s behaviors failed miserably. Exacerbated and worried about his self-destructive son, he lost sleep and developed ulcers. Kevin finally came to the conclusion that it would take a miracle to turn his son’s life around.
During Kevin’s first semester in his Ph.D. program, he received a call from Austin, then contemplating suicide, asking for help. As with most parents, Kevin was willing to do anything to help his son. It didn’t matter that he was working 90-hours a week working two jobs and carrying a full academic load at a Research 1 institution, Kevin was going to dig deep within himself and do whatever he had to in order to help Austin. However, this time he decided he needed to use a different strategy – instead of trying to change Austin, Kevin focused on changing his approach to parenting. So, began a 5-year journey that would radically change the lives of both Austin and Kevin in ways neither of them could have imagined.
Today Dr. Kevin Fall uses the same (but improved and streamlined) approach to help parents with their challenging teens. The work Dr. Fall and Austin have done together can be found in their Best-Selling book, How to Get Your Son Back: 7 Steps to Reconnect and Repair Your Relationship. He received his PhD from the University of Iowa in psychology and spent years working with some of the most hardened and dangerous individuals with histories of violence and severe mental illness.
Prior to becoming a psychologist, Dr. Fall was an information technology consultant specializing in managing outsourcing engagements and large-scale projects with various Fortune-500 companies. He was also licensed as a certified public accountant in the State of Texas.
