 Anytime two more people come together, and do life closely, weather by blood, or marriage...or not, you have family.

What I do....

  • I help teens identify, own and use their power (maturity and independence) in a way that is helpful in their identity development and be intentional about what they will do and how they will make an impact on the world.

  • I coach moms and dads through, digging out of parent shaming, forgiving themselves and reset their minds and communicate to their tees so that they can continue to be a trusted guide in their teens life!

I would love to help you fill that gap in your family. Go ahead and peak around the site, you know you want to....

Why I do it...

Teens are the next generation of leaders and parents.


I believe there needs to be a conversation around the unintentional misguided expectations parents place on their teens. As a teen and young adult, I spend so much time having to undo and redo choices I made for fear of letting people down. I know that is not what my parents wanted for me. And I know you do not want that for your kids either!

You would think after all the years of research and shifts in parenting paradigms over so many generations we would have a better idea of how to do this gig.

Everyone has advice. But it never seems to be something that will work for your family for one reason or another. So we just ask everyone we come across until we find someone who has advice we can use or simply validates what we already believe. Most of the time struggling with mom (or dad) shaming along the way and having to dig ourselves out of the guilt hole to carry on.

Your teen has one job!.... To push boundaries, to try things out, to learn by trial and error. He is forging his own identity and you are not raising a robot. He knows what he is doing because he follows his gut.

 Teens are pushing....parents are holding their boundary. Just because things "go wrong" doesn't mean  parents are doing it wrong. It is marathon, not a sprint. 

You do not need to have all of the answers or even all of the tools on your own!!! It takes a village. Allow me to be part of your village! My free gift to you.
