Hi, welcome to the Teen Advice site!  I am so glad that you've stopped by.  I have a strong passion for supporting and helping teens and their parents. I have been working with youth for over 10 years, and I enjoy providing guidance and strategies to help teens live their very best life.  

As a Certified Life Coach, my life's mission is to empower teens to succeed in both school and life...with confidence!  The teens growing up in today's generation are faced with many cultural challenges and pressures. Life Coaching is an essential preventative approach to giving teens the life-skills and tools they need now, rather than trying to "fix" them later.  In my Coaching Practice, I have made it my life's mission to not only provide a service that gives teens and parents an outlet to talk to someone who they can trust, but I am also their support system and accountability partner providing them proven tools and strategies to overcome obstacles and succeed. I provide virtual 1:1 Coaching & Mentorship services as well as group Coaching & Mentorship services.  View more information at
