The teen years can be full of turmoil and change. Teen coaching and life coaching can help guide teens through this difficult time. Life coaching is not just for adults! As a teen coach, I look to make those transitions flow more freely and to allow teens to find their own unique and special place in life. Every teen deserves to be happy and to strive to be more than they believe they can be. Every teen has dreams and goals, but they may not fully understand what those goals are. I have worked with teens for over a decade, helping them to find their path and achieve a happy and productive life. It is easy for an individual to lose their way in life. That is even more true for teens. But each teen has a unique set of skills and abilities that will allow him or her to reach the goals they set out for themselves.
I believe that becoming a confident, well-rounded adult is a goal that every teen can achieve. I have worked with a variety of individuals to help them overcome any obstacles that have stood in their way in the past. By learning to work through those obstacles in the teen years, the individual is better able to work through other obstacles as they arise in the adult years. I teach real life skills and help to direct and coach teens to develop their own goals. We work together toward achieving those goals. Every teen is capable of so much more than they believe. It is my life’s joy to see teens progress through each coaching session and to move on to the next with more energy and determination.

As a teen coach, I help teens to discover their purpose and their true passion. Through coaching sessions, I allow teens to learn more about themselves in a healthy and positive setting. Together we discover where the teens strengths lie and how to overcome any obstacles that have stood in the way of their success. We also work to identify any relationship issues with family, friends, and others in order to work through improving those relationships. My duty as a teen coach is to help teens become well-rounded, happy, and productive adults with the skills needed to be successful in all areas of their lives.
As a teen coach, my responsibilities include:
-Provide a secure and confidential environment in which a teen can explore their feelings, needs, beliefs, and goals.
-Involvement of family members, where applicable, in the transformation of the teen.
-Acting as a mentor, guide, friend, and coach to the teen as an unbiased, neutral party.
-Helping to identify goals and obstacles that are getting in the way of those goals.
-Understanding the needs of each client and building a workable plan to achieve success and happiness in all areas of life.
-Working with the teen and family to find ways to overcome obstacles and achieve the goals set forth.
-My #1 responsibility is always the health and safety of each and every client. While confidentiality is key, should something arise that shows the teen to be in danger, my responsibility is to mitigate that danger by involving parents or others who can remove that immediate danger from the life of the teen.
