About

Anxiety is crippling your teenager. There are few things more devastating for a parent than watching your child suffer and not knowing how to help. You don’t want to fuel your child’s anxiety with your own, but it’s hard to stay calm and reassuring when you feel helpless and overwhelmed. Thus, anxiety escalates—for you and your teen. Teenagers today are under immense pressure to achieve, especially those from affluent families, and the pressure is taking a profound toll on their mental health. In fact, children of affluent families have significantly higher rates of anxiety, depression, psychosomatic symptoms, and substance abuse.
What teens need to successfully transition into adulthood is resilience. I have a proven methodology for teaching it, which gives my clients skills that will serve them for the rest of their lives. My resilience-training model has been validated in four studies with researchers from Duke and proven to improve anxiety, distress, depression and self-efficacy.
No one is immune to the ups and downs of life. The question is: How much will you suffer? The skills I teach will allow your teens to use their struggles to become stronger, happier versions of themselves. Call now for a free consultation. Even if you don't work with me, you will learn something valuable from the call and be a step closer to feeling better.
