Teen Support Groups: A series of support meetings encourage social skills, motivate, teach empathy and challenge “am I alone in this” syndrome.

Workshops: I teach too! I use the, iSEENOW© series, created by me. These are psycho-educational workshops and awareness builders.

While working with these incredible teens and young adults I was privileged to witness them identify, explore and safely navigate pivotal issues during their time with me.

During this period, I witnessed so much growth and awareness that I wanted others to benefit from this knowledge.

This is why I created several fun and awareness provoking workshops that can evoke problem solving skills, personal insight and support.

Some of these workshops include:

-Anatomy of a boyfriend/ Anatomy of a partner (relationships, abuse, love)

-Alone but together (Parent child relationships, romantic partner relationships)

-I love me I love me not (self esteem)

-My skinny chin chin (body image)

-Oh snap, I think I picked the wrong major (college level, entry job level)

-To name a few. Contact me directly for more details or tailor your own workshop.
