Is your teen struggling at school, isolating, and not opening up?
The teens and early 20s are often a time of painful insecurity and self-consciousness. For some teens, a lack of confidence and self-worth can be excruciating and debilitating. Of course, this painful time is a struggle for parents, too!
Learning to love and believe in yourself isn't easy, but with the right guidance it is totally possible.
I help teenaged girls and boys:
... Learn the behaviors that foster deep self-respect
... Replace self-criticism and doubt with self-compassion
... Identify their own values, strengths, gifts & desires
... Transition from a perfection to wholeness mindset
... Skillfully communicate their thoughts and feelings
... Form habits and rituals of self-care
The transition from adolescence to adulthood is a very delicate period. I offer my young clients a safe space to explore themselves and their inner and outer experiences without worry of judgment, shame, or intimidation. I serve as a compassionate and curious guide on their journey to enhanced self-awareness and personal growth.
When working with teens, I also support their parents and guardians to help them understand how to enable and promote the ongoing development of the teen's healthy self-esteem and positive personal evolution by offering tools and strategies that foster trust, openness, and connection.
