The Power of Acceptance

You can stop trying to fix your struggling teen.

June 27th at 4pm ET - on Zoom

This workshop is ideal for parents of teens with mental health issues who feel like they are on an emotional roller coaster and are at a loss for what to do next.

If you are like me, you have probably had a vision for your teenager’s life from the minute they were born – maybe even earlier for those of you who really like to plan.  

What kind of student they would be, what their friends would be like, where they would go to college and how they would start their own family when that time comes.  

And now here you are – watching your teen struggle with mental health issues and not live up to the vision you have always had for them.   

It sucks.

So where do you go from here?

Good question.      

I believe the path forward starts with acceptance.  

You don’t have to lose hope.  You just need to be willing to accept that your teenager’s journey will probably look different from what you had envisioned – and that’s ok.  

Most parents don’t know that their efforts to “fix” things for their teen can backfire and keep them stuck or make things worse.  And that acceptance of the situation is what will actually help.  


This 90-minute workshop will break down the path to acceptance in 3 steps:



the problem



the feelings that come with it



what exists without the need to “fix it” so that you can better position yourself to find a solution that will actually help

This workshop is ideal for parents of teenagers with mental health issues who feel like they are on an emotional roller coaster and are having a hard time watching their teen not live up to their potential, alienate the people around them, make bad decisions and not take good care of themselves.  

Or for parents who are just generally at a loss for how to help and feel bad watching their kids suffer. 

By the end of the workshop, you will be on your way to feeling less frustrated, disappointed, and hopeless about your situation, and seeing much more clearly where you can have the most impact.

We have gained so much from your coaching and the group experience. I want to thank you for your help because it really has made a world of difference. We know that there will always be bumps in the road but feel we now have the tools to navigate in a more constructive manner. If you are a parent of a teen who is struggling with anxiety/depression, this parent coaching group is extremely valuable in giving you the tools and mindset to help your teen. After participating in Dr. Young's parent coaching group, I am able to show up as a more compassionate parent while at the same time maintaining boundaries and rules. I also highly recommend the parent coaching for spouses too; it is a great way to get both parents on the same page and improve communication with their teen.

"As parents of a young adult who suffers from both anxiety and depression, my husband and I sometimes find ourselves at a loss for how best to work with our daughter and provide her with the support that she needs. When we saw that Dr. Young was establishing a coaching group for parents, we were a bit hesitant as it’s never easy to share personal, occasionally painful, experiences with people who you don’t know. Nonetheless, we decided to give it a try. It really was a great experience! Dr. Young provides clear, easy to follow suggestions on how to approach challenges while facilitating discussions and providing validation. We would definitely recommend this parents’ coaching group as it gave my husband and me a new perspective, insight into the fact that our issues were not unique and lots of support from some very loving families."
