Worried about your teen?

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.
