    After a few short months with Michelle’s life coaching, I have seen positive changes in my teenage daughter. She has become aware of her true self. Michelle has equipped her with tools to goal set and problem solve.

    I will admit that I was very skeptical at first, but Michelle truly understands what young girls are facing today in school and in their social lives, and she has made such a positive impact on my daughter that I am now a 100% believer and encourage anyone to talk with Michelle and learn more about the coaching she provides.

Let's Work Together

Teen Girls (11-18)

Your daughter is full of promise. You see her potential but she may not right now.

Life Coaching for your teen girl is a positive and proactive way for your daughter to build her self esteem and discover her strengths.

Do you find that she is over critical of her appearance?

Is she struggling with school, friends, and life balance?

Is she anxious about “fitting in?” Does she have a difficult time managing stress or finding her own inspired way of organizing her life?

Has she stopped confiding in you about the details of what is happening in the day to day?

Would you like to see her grasp a deeper sense of herself and her value? Does your daughter have leadership potential, but does not know how to utilize and channel her giftings?

You have come to the right place.

Contact me now at 910-632-0762 for a Complimentary Inquiry Call to see if Life Coaching is a viable option for your teen.

Parents

You want the best for your daughter. That is a given.

You might be here because you are experiencing the natural “pulling away” that begins occuring as early as her tweens. You might be here because you know she needs a trusted, outside ally.

I am a safe place to land and a judgement-free life-line for your daughter. In our coaching sessions, she will discover her value and develop a greater sense of self-esteem. Her confidence cannot help but increase as she becomes self-aware and awakens to her very own personal power.

Life Coaching is a positive, proactive approach to drawing out your daughter’s best and connecting her with the truest version of herself.

We focus on the now, who she wants to become and the power she has to make decisions in this very moment that will shape her future and continue to create her character.

I also offer sessions to support Parents so you can best support her through her coaching journey. You will receive fresh ideas tailored to the needs of you and your teen.

Young Women (19-29)

Women truly do not know and fully begin to understand themselves until well into their 30s.

This means there is a lot to discover about yourself during the years of eighteen to forty!

Do you struggle with trying to make everyone happy?

Are you in a complicated relationship or job where you are giving your power away and you want to know how to take it back?

Do you ever feel like you are not enough?

Do you want to explore what it means to live a life honoring to your core values?

Do you want to discover the freedom of saying “no” to good things so you can be available to say YES to great things?

Would you like to become a better friend to yourself and connect with your true value and worth?

You have come to the right place.
