Reach, Love, Connect
You Are Not Alone.
I am an author, speaker, and coach who helps parents reach their troubled teen to overcome self-destructive patterns, through my 5-Step R.E.A.C.H process of Identifying the “R”oot cause, addressing issues with “E”yes wide open, “A”ttacking the destructive influences with wise courage, “C”hasing them with unconditional boundaries and love, and repairing the “H”urt that holds the family back; so they can accept each other as they are, having a healthy and happy relationship for years to come.
There once was a little girl; she was funny, joyful and kindhearted. She was also impulsive, had difficulty in school, and sometimes didn’t understand social cues.
Many of the adults around her lacked the patience she needed, and from a very young age, she began to experience bullying.
As the years went on, she struggled with low self-esteem and a deep desire to be accepted. Eventually, it became too much for her, and she slumped into a deep state of anxiety, depression and risky behaviours. Finally, she ran from home and became erratic.
Her parents sought help from her school, counsellors, doctors and law enforcement, only to find a lack of resources. Desperate, they began the long process of getting their daughter away from people who wanted to further harm her.
