Beyond The Tears: A Parent's Handbook For Dealing With

Teenage Depression

This book is the Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus for mothers and teenage daughters! If you are tired of watching your daughter struggle with unhappiness and are ready to do whatever you can as a parent to help, this book is for you.

I help break down spiritual concepts to help today’s youth expand their thinking, raise their awareness, and challenge their negative beliefs so they can experience the joy of life right now.

Parenting a teenager is hard under the best of circumstances. It’s even more difficult if they are struggling with negative emotions such as anxiety, depression, or low self-worth. This book was written to help parents support their struggling child. Because I know that your daughter doesn’t have to be miserable!

Parenting Book - Your Daughter Doesn't Have To Be Miserable

Bridging the Gap

Between Teens and Parents

The most common complaint I hear from teens is that parents don’t listen, don’t understand, or don’t care how they feel. I have also worked with enough loving parents to know that’s not the case. So, what’s the disconnect? ‍️

Parents can play a powerful role in their child’s healing if they can get their teen to open up and have the right tools to support them. That’s why I wrote my book, Your Daughter Doesn’t Have to Be Miserable: An Approach to Supporting Your Teenage Daughter Through Depression. 

Speaking of my book, I am determined to get it into as many hands as possible so parents can feel empowered to help their teens heal.

But I also know that a book doesn’t cut it for some people. So, I developed a companion course that includes recorded lessons, live group coaching, and a private FB group for community and support.

Flashback To The Time

When I Was 14 Years Old...

I was absolutely miserable and took it out on my mom every chance I got. From shouting matches and door slamming to just completely shutting everyone out.

Nothing she did or said was right. I was hurting and she knew it. But the more she tried to give me advice, the more frustrated I got. Teens don’t act out because they want to.

It’s because they don’t know what to do. And unfortunately, neither do parents. I spent years learning and unlearning so I could help teens and support parents. Now I want to help you.

I wrote this book because I know there are so many struggling teenage girls right now and on the other end of that struggle are moms who are at their wits end and unsure of how to help.

This book is the perfect companion to the course.

My first-ever Teen Connect Program. The companion course for my best-selling book, Your Daughter Doesn’t Have to Be Miserable.
