Tweens and teens need help now more than ever!
While teaching in middle school for almost 20 years, I have witnessed student stress and anxiety increase at a rapid rate while the time teachers are able to address such struggles decrease drastically. Many students are in desperate need of a supportive adult to listen to them, validate their feelings, and provide practical tools to help them manage stress and anxiety. Because this was a part of my everyday interactions with my students and is a significant area of need, I decided to become certified as a Youth Resilience Coach to expand my reach and help as many tweens and teens as possible.Read my story

Coaching vs Therapy
Coaching and therapy both focus on improving the well-being and outcomes for the people they serve. Clients can use both therapists and coaches to support different needs and goals.
Here are some main differences based on client's needs:
The intervention approach to coaching focuses on the present and future, and is solution focused and action oriented. Coaching interventions are strength based with a focus on promoting the client's progress, growth, and resourcefulness. The coach helps the client build skills and develop their own solutions, fostering empowerment, self-advocacy, and confidence. There is no official diagnosing or treating.
