- I sometimes feel like I want to just give up or stop caring.

- I am concerned that my teenager is making poor decisions that could have a negative long-term consequence.
- Imagine feeling a connection with your teenager again.

You don't just have to imagine this.
This can become your reality. While your children should be one of the most important parts of your life, your teenager should not consume your life. You should be able to go to work, run errands and spend time with your partner / spouse and friends without constantly worrying about your teenager.
You, along with anyone else in your home, should enjoy a peaceful environment that is free from constant arguing or disrespect. You should be able to implement a rule and have your teen respect and follow that rule while also setting a good example for any younger siblings that may be in the home.
Imagine a week where your teen comes home when they should, picks up after themselves and engages with you in a positive manner. This is possible. That younger version of your child who was loving, happy and respectful is still there and with the right support, you can reconnect with them. As a coach, I will walk beside you to help you achieve your goals in regards to your relationship with your teenager. We will develop an individualized and specific plan that will support you in managing your teen's challenging behaviors.
I have worked with hundreds of parents of teenagers and I have seen relationships improve, behaviors improve, academic performance improve and households go from intolerable to enjoyable. I once worked with a father who said, "I run multi-million dollar companies and I can't figure out how to get my son to behave responsibly". I think this sums it up for many parents. You are smart, you are a good person, you are trying really hard but are feeling like you are not as effective as you want to be in addressing your teen's behaviors. I've work with parents of teens who are disrespectful, who don't follow their curfew, who don't attend school, who are using alcohol or drugs, who don't want to get out of bed and who act out aggressively, to name a few of the presenting concerns. In working with parents of teenagers I use my background as a licensed therapist, along with my experience as a certified coach, to teach and support them in using specific techniques that get them the results they desire, based on their individual situation.
Things don't need to continue to be the way they have been until your teen "outgrows them", but in order for them to change, you need to do something different. This could be the answer you are looking for if you are willing to be coachable and consistent with the strategies I will teach you.
You can do this! Day one or one day...you decide.

Individual coaching calls with me
4, 45 minute, individual coaching calls with me each month via Zoom video or telephonic only (your choice). We will create a concrete plan, specific to your situation that will help you in effectively addressing your teens behaviors.
Unlimited Voxer support
In between our coaching calls, you will have unlimited access to me via Voxer for text or voice text to support you when something unexpected comes up. While weekly coaching alone is incredibly powerful, this will give you daily support if needed.
1 coaching voucher / month of coaching
Once our coaching is complete, you will have 1, 30 minute bonus voucher, per month of coaching, for a "check in" session following our work together. This will allow me to support you, even after our official work together is done.
I'm ready to change things now!
Click below if you are worried things will not improve or will even worsen if they keep going as the have been. I will be your coach and your partner, with the most intensive support I offer. We will work together to get things back on track with your teenager.
Parent Intensive Program Process
Prior to our first session, I will send you form to fill out so that I have some background about your specific situation. This will save us time and allow us to maximize our time together so that you are able to leave the session with an action plan.
Unlike many other coaching programs, each session is 45 minutes long so there is enough time for me to fully understand your situation, along with enough time for us to develop a concrete plan of action each week. While we will focus on your relationship with your teenager, we will also focus on your overall well-being since the worry, stress and frustration has likely been taking it's toll on you. In our weekly calls, we will talk through any situations that arise, talk about your experience following the plan we created and make a plan of action for the following week.
I will offer you my expertise but also support, accountability and encouragement as we go through this process together. Accountability is a key component of coaching that significantly contributes to its effectiveness. By changing your behavior and response to your teen, their behavior will change, however, you will need support along the way since this will not always be easy. If it was easy, you would have done it already, right?
In addition, since we can't plan for what will happen week to week with your teen (I wish we could!), you will have unlimited access to me via Voxer in between coaching calls. This will allow you to text me or voice text me at any time to update me on a situation or to get additional support. This is not an "on call" system where I will immediately respond (although sometimes I may if not in coaching sessions and not sleeping), however, I will generally respond within 12 hours or less, 7 days per week. I will always respond within 24 hours. This is a game changer since otherwise, you may need to wait 6 days between sessions for support. With this added component, you can receive daily support if needed.
If things don't change, what will your life look like in a month, in 3 months or in a year? How will you feel if things don't get better, or if they get worse?
I've seen so many parents suffer as they watch their teenager make poor decisions, engage in risky behavior and disrupt their household for years. It does not need to be like that for you. Get the help you deserve, see some results and get things back on track for you and your teen.
DAY ONE, OR ONE DAY...YOU DECIDE.
