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 veiw things in a way that gives you a chance at real change.

A little 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.

Why Your Teen Isn’t Turning To You

If our earnest goal is to have them open up, show us their soft underbelly and let us know even the ugly about their lives, maybe even effect real and lasting change, then guess what? We have to stop being reactive. We have to work on our own anger, past issues, all of it.

Be The Change You Want To See In Your Teen

We really want to believe that they don’t see right through us, that our weak lines (“do it because I said so” or “I can do this thing I’m telling you not to do because I’m an adult”) will actually make the difference we are just desperate to see.
