I am glad you are here. I have something I want to share with you, and that’s my passion for helping teens and young adults prepare to conquer the demands of a highly complex and ever-changing world.
I believe that for success in this world, people need: a sense of who they are, a purpose or direction to go in, a plan for getting there, a way to evaluate their plan, and the skills necessary to evaluate and adapt their plan if needed.
Teenagers and young adults are just coming into their own. They are uncovering and discovering who they are and what they want out of life. Many times, they lack critical skills to help them on their way. Skills such as self-awareness, goal-setting and evaluating, self-advocacy, avoiding thinking traps, nourishing a growth- mindset, effective communication, time-management…
When these skills are missing, it can result in struggles at home or school, inability to find a job or keep a job, low self-esteem, lack of motivation, constantly being late or missing deadlines…
I help teens and young adults:
Evaluate and reflect on their work toward achieving goals, editing and changing strategies as necessary.

Self-awareness is foundational to success. This is true for most things and certainly true for time management. What does time mean to you? What is the value of your time? Are you spending your time doing the things that matter most to you? How do you manage your...
