ARE YOU READY

to connect
with your teen

ON A NEW LEVEL?

What really matters?

I promote balance and hard work, big ideas and the baby steps that get us there. I truly believe that people are good and want to succeed. There is no magic for creating change and results. It happens from listening and creatively exploring options with my clients and supporting them as they learn how to move forward independently with concrete skills and real results. Parents get to quit nagging. Kids get to make themselves proud.

Success, Not B.S.

Sometimes we fool ourselves into thinking things about ourselves, our kids, our parents and our life that are just totally made up lies. These ideas can mess up our life and ruin relationships. Let’s look together at what you’ve gotten stuck in your head that doesn’t serve you. We can create something new that inspires you and gets you unstuck for good!

Humanity is hard

It’s easy to get into the mindset that you have to figure things out by yourself, as a teenager AND as a parent. And sometimes, just getting a tutor or preaching one more sermon isn’t going to make the kind of impact you really want- an impact that affects your whole life. I will teach you how to view things in a way that gives you a chance at real change.

A little HELP helps a lot

We are all human beings and being human is hard. I have respect for you because you’re trying, you’re open-minded and you’re doing the best you can. I will never judge you for ANYTHING. I want to look with you at how you can make being human an asset and how you can be a BAD ASS as soon as possible.

Let Us Resist Our Own Resistance. (This article is not for babies.)

Parents often stay in the space of appalled, frustrated, annoyed, disappointed-- which are all natural reactions for sure, BUT if we don’t move past our human reactions when reality does not match our expectations, we do not get to the good part where we solve real problems.
