How to Best Help Your Struggling Teen

November 8th at 8pm ET - on Zoom

This small group 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.

Are you at a loss for how to best help your struggling teen? 

Does one of the following sound like you?


Your teen was just diagnosed with anxiety, depression, ADHD, or OCD and finding the right help feels so overwhelming.  Every place you call has a long waiting list and you have gotten a ton of conflicting advice from friends and family.  It feels like there is so much at stake and you don’t want to make the wrong decision. 


You have been dealing with this for a while now.  Your teen is not getting out of bed, not doing their work, doesn’t seem to care about their future, and won’t speak to you half the time. You have tried everything – several therapists, medication, and all of the advice in the parenting books – and your teen is just not getting better.  Nothing seems to work and you are tired of feeling so frustrated and scared.


It seems like there is always a crisis when it comes to your teen, and they won’t get help even though they are deeply unhappy with their life and too anxious to function.  And now they are smoking too much pot and you are worried that they may start experimenting with other drugs.  You are so afraid that they are going to ruin their life forever and don’t know what to do.

If you answered ‘yes‘ to any of the above, this 60-minute small group workshop is for you.

Bring ALL of your questions. 

I have the answers you need to help you decide what to do next and to regain the peace of mind that comes with knowing that you can be ok no matter what happens.  

And the best part:

This is happening in a small group so you get to see what other parents are asking, all the things you never even knew you should ask or felt too uncomfortable to ask.  It is a great way to share resources with people in your exact same situation.  

It’s time to start living instead of just surviving.

It’s time to actually enjoy your family again.

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."
