Leah Calvert is going through hard times on "Teen Mom 2" season 5B.

In addition to her recent break down while on prescription pills, Calvert has been struggling with parenting her three children, and in a sneak peek at the upcoming episode, fans are seeing her seek help from a behavioral counselor.

"After the fail-fest of trying meds, [Calvert] has decided to get some real help by seeing a behavioral counselor," The Stir reported on Aug. 1. "In a sneak peek clip for next week's episode, we're treated to a scene of Leah losing it with her kids while trying to Skype with a friend, and talking about how she wants to see someone to learn how to manage her kids better, and not saddle them with heaps of psychological damage."

During the preview, Calvert is seen going from a place of contentment to a place of complete mayhem in a matter of seconds, which is a bit alarming and shows just how stressed she is.

For the last few years, Calvert and her ex-husband, Corey Simms, have been dealing with the ongoing heartache of their daughter's muscular dystrophy diagnosis, and while they are glad to finally know what is holding her back, it's sad for them to think that Ali will never lead a normal life -- and that she'll eventually be confined to a wheelchair.

As if that weren't enough to have Calvert feeling overwhelmed, she is also having to keep up with Ali's constant medical and therapy bills, as well as take care of her other two children, Aleeah and Adalynn.

Luckily, her husband, Jeremy, has leant his support.
