Tweens & Teens

Coaching is a great solution for teens & tween girls who may be going through the pressures of school, peers & parents!

Our teen girls live in a complicated, contradictory, and media-saturated world, and the roads they must navigate extend beyond the changes of their physical bodies. Some of these roads include: discovering a unique identity, taking on more and more aspects of adulthood while leaving aspects of childhood behind, and developing independence while maintaining healthy family bonds.

It is not uncommon to run into teen girls who have not yet discovered what they’re good at or what’s important to them. Girls often need help recognizing their own skills and strengths!  Identifying the influences that are shaping them, and learning to make values-guided decisions. Developing that core-self is not an overnight process, it takes time to uncover what makes you unique, what your gifts are, how to respect and learn from your emotions, and what you want to stand for in this world. Coaching offers a protected space for those conversations to take place.
