Depression and suicide prevention, dealing with a suicide attempt, the suicide of a friend or family member.

Rough language in order to be accepted by a certain friend or group.

 

Weekend parties and the pressure to go along with stealing meds, alcohol, drinking and drinking games, sex...all in an effort to be accepted and fit in, and the resulting anxiety of not fitting in which can lead to depression and suicide attempts.
 

Blended family situations are common in today's world; children struggling in school; and financial pressures are just some of the issues which can strain a marriage to the breaking point.

The new rules of dating.

 

Pressure from all directions to be successful in school with grades and sports and popularity.

 

Anxiety at school with tests or sports, or with friends, or with family

 

Body image and pressure from self and others about appearance leading to out of control behavior like anorexia, bulimia, extreme dieting, cutting

 

Help specifically for teen boys and young men

 

The evil trinity of down-low, darkness and deception.

 

Your child has just told you they are gay...now what?

Trauma therapy - EMDR

 

We're not just another adult – We're not gonna lecture you.  We're not a best friend – We really won't gossip behind your back, and we actually do know what to do.  We're not a sibling or rival – We're not in competition with you.  We really are on your side

As coaches we focus on where you are now in your life, where you would rather be, and how to get there.  Challenges are a part of everyone’s life.  Being challenged will never go away, but you can learn tools and strategies to successfully overcome whatever life (and parents, and teachers, and friends, and whoever…) throw at you.  Coaching is simple, yet powerful – and we have fun too!
