For Teens Only
Are you feeling overwhelmed trying to meet the standards of others?
Do you feel like you have to be someone else to please others?
Are you confused about who you are?
Is life feeling very intense?
Being a teen is hard these days. You may have excitement about your life's dreams and be completely overwhelmed by how to get there. You have teachers, coaches, parents and friends giving you advice, and it may seem hard to hear your own voice.
This can lead to being caught up in living the expectations of others just to avoid the pressure put on you to conform.
I will provide you with a private space to explore your options, your values and beliefs, and gain insight on what you want for yourself.
"It wasn't bad. I actually liked it. I'm using the stuff we talk about and it's getting better."

Oftentimes, your outcome is not so far off of what others want, but it is important to find your own way there, otherwise you can feel like a robot. Other times, what you want is very different from the expectations of those around you.
I can help you gain acceptance and understanding, without self-sabotaging behaviors.
With increased freedom comes more responsibility.
I will support you to manage your responsibilities in a way that leads you to feel proud of yourself by honoring your own integrity.
