& Teens

Confidence starts young. Respect starts young. Courage starts young. Leadership starts young.

High-level leadership work is not just for adults and established leaders. What better opportunity to really establish authenticity, learn how to advocate for what matters, and develop communication skills that allow to really connect with others, than when we are young?

If we want our kids to thrive as adults, we have to start giving them the skills they need. We need to help them learn to take healthy risks, navigate barriers, and develop emotional agility. They need to know themselves and know how to connect with others.

We need to develop the whole self and give youth, especially teens, skills to manage their stress and cope with anxiety. More than anything, we need to help them believe they are both worthy and capable of living the life they want and feeling love and belonging.


Workshops for k-12 students

Our kids are in desperate need of life skills. They need to understand and manage emotions, they need to navigate challenging friendships, they need to withstand the pressures brought on by social media, they need to learn to set boundaries and advocate for themselves. It’s not easy work, but it’s necessary. My team and I work with full grade levels and small student groups. We work with youth organizations and partner with schools to bring this into the classroom. The best lesson our kids might get is one that helps them know themselves and others. We create custom programs designed for each developmental level, and would love to work with your kids.

Dare to Be

The Dare to Be Programs, offered through the Conscious Leadership Academy at USD, are designed to build personal confidence, self-esteem, and social capacity. We help kids access their authentic voice and inner courage to strengthen their sense of self.

We want the next generation of leaders to feel that they have the skills to have courageous conversations, cultivate collaborative connections and make a positive impact in the world.

A unique aspect of this program is the opportunity to integrate parents into the experience. Fostering a strong parent-child relationship, creating a shared language, and establishing open communication are the benefits to the parent-integration approach to the Dare to Be program.

Youth & Teen Coaching

More than ever, youth and teens are faced with challenges that create anxiety, stress, and discontent. Young adults need support to develop a strong sense of self, learn effective ways to navigate relationships, and develop strong boundaries to keep them emotionally safe. Not all kids need a therapist, yet the support of a coach who understands what they are going through and can help them develop the skills needed for adulthood can make all the difference.
