Life Coaching for Tweens/Teens/Young Women

Guiding Girls and Young Women to Inner Harmony

It’s not easy being a teenager; it never has been and it never will be.  Today it seems like it’s even harder than we remember from our own childhoods.  The pressure seems to grow every year with school demands, competition for colleges, and constant social media comparison.  The result is a generation of kids who are anxious, socially uncomfortable, more dependent upon their parents, and living with less joy than we did.  How about some pandemic remote learning for extra fun?  It can be relentless.

How can coaching help?

Sometimes an emerging adult needs guidance from a trained, unbiased person who isn’t their parent. As a Certified Teen Wisdom Life Coach, I guide girls and young women to discover their core values, their interests, their strengths and weaknesses, and their future desires. Our sessions are confidential, a safe place to learn more about themselves using proven tools and strategies. We’ll also laugh a lot along the journey because being a teen is a ridiculously hilarious time in life. Coaching topics may include:

  • Confidence and self-awareness
  • Academic stress and pressure
  • Body image and healthy eating
  • Friendship challenges, girl drama, and social anxiety
  • Healthy social media use
  • Navigating teen dating relationships
  • Effective communication
  • Parent and family relationships
  • The pressure to use drugs and alcohol
  • And much, much more!

I love middle school and high school kids and I’m fascinated by the perspective they bring. If you have a daughter, let’s talk. Even the most “put together” kid has something they’d like to work out with someone who isn’t their mom or dad. I’d love to be a part of your child’s successful future. 

Kudos to Marianne Breneman for her most positive and helpful impact on our daughter, from middle school through high school. We know that our daughter’s life has been immeasurably enriched by Marianne. We have complete trust in Marianne’s ability to help our daughter.
