Find Your Way

Level Up for Teens - Online

Game Changing Wisdom They Don't Have to Learn the Hard Way!

. . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
Set your teen up with 6 weeks of learning and development with an hour each week of Q&A with me on Saturdays at 9AM (parents can join the Q&A, too!). This isn't a replacement for therapy, but it's a great place to start if you're not sure what your teen might need, or if they're even willing to do counseling or a group. Offer them the chance to take some time to build themselves up in this crazy world of social media - looking for 'likes' and comments to feel valued, help them see that they already have value - their existence is enough!

Do you worry about your teen?
Does it seem like he's been lonely lately, spending all his time on his phone? Does she seem stressed, anxious, even depressed? Is she retreating to her room, ignoring you, and losing interest in spending time with the family? 

My mission is to help you understand your teen's behavior, communicate with her, learn to validate him, and help her find her self confidence and joy. I facilitate personal identity development in teens to heal from their past and give them new strategies and skills to move from childhood to adulthood without the baggage of self-doubt and anxiety.
