Non-judgmental, honest conversations with youth that offer practical solutions to everyday situations, including self-esteem, recognizing healthy relationships and how to cope with anxiety.

Building Self Esteem

What is your self talk?The way we feel about ourselves is often reflected in the way that we treat others. Self-esteem is the way that people think about themselves and how worthwhile they feel.

Managing Anxiety

We live in a world that is evolving quickly and keeping up with the pace can become overwhelming at times.  Learning how to manage anxiety, how to talk about it and when to seek help are a few things we speak about in our workshops.

Breathing, Yoga and Meditation

Learning to breathe has plenty of health benefits. That's why we have lessons focused on breathing and understanding the importance of the use of our breath patterns to calm and relax the mind and body.

 Personalized workshops are available upon request.

Healthy Relationships

Being able to maintain a positive relationship is a very important part of having a fulfilling life. A healthy relationship can be shared between any two people who love, support, encourage and help each other.
