Welcome to my blog! I'm so glad you stopped by!! My name is Cindy and I am a certified teen life and confidence coach. I'm so excited to share my knowledge and experience with parents of teens who want to support their children through the challenges of adolescence.
How did I get here? I'm happy you asked!
I was that busy working mom who took pride in being overscheduled and overworked.
But following the untimely passing of my husband, I realized that despite having achieved what society deems fulfilling, I wasn't happy. I constantly felt inadequate and struggled to recognize the person I saw in the mirror. This dissatisfaction with myself and my life began to impact my confidence, relationships, parenting, and career. I came to the realization that I could no longer continue living like this and knew that I needed to take action. The tragedy became the catalyst I needed to make a change in my life. I decided to shift her focus toward helping others and becoming a life coach.
As I began to share my new perspectives I soon realized that throughout my twenty years in corporate leadership, and 15 years as a wellness professional, there was a common refrain I kept hearing which was, "if only someone had told me that sooner I'd … (fill in the blank).” This sentiment weighed on my heart and mind and before I knew it, I was drawn to helping my own teens (and their friends) with real-life advice to help them manage friendships, academic pressure, and family relationships. I saw how much stress and pressure these teens were under in their quest to manage it all. I knew I had found my “true calling” and decided I didn't want to continue to see our young people struggle and become the next adults to say "if only someone told me that sooner."
I changed course and found true fulfillment by supporting teens. With my experience in wellness and my passion for helping teens navigate the ups and downs of adolescence, I became a certified teen life coach. Now my favorite thing to do is help teens and young adults on the edge of their greatness to understand and appreciate themselves. As part of my coaching, the teens work to develop self-love, positive body image, stronger confidence, and freedom from stress and judgment. I provide practical real-time advice, tools, and strategies that they can start using immediately to change their habits, get through the hard stuff, and lower their stress so that they can discover true happiness and fulfillment long before middle age!

Through my blog, I hope to share some of what I've learned with parents who want to support their teens in the best way possible.
In this blog, you can expect to find tips and advice on topics such as communication, self-esteem, academic success, social issues and so much more. My hope is that you will share some of your questions and challenges and we can work together on a practical strategy that you can implement.
I believe that by working together, parents and coaches can help teens thrive and become confident, resilient, and successful adults. That's why I'm blogging: to share my knowledge and experience and to connect with parents who are looking for support and guidance.
