If you are a clinician or work in the mental health field, we know how challenging and demanding the work is. Keeping some clients and in particular teens, engaged while helping them explore their problems is sometimes an enormous task.

As Clinical Director of an Adolescent Treatment Center, I created a wide variety of tools to help engaged the teens that stayed with us. I continue to use them in my private practice which consists mainly of adults and families! What I love about these tools is that  they were refined over time and have already seen multiple revisions. I have taught some of these to members of my team who went on to use them to great and long lasting effect.

These same tools are available to you, and I will train you as I did my team using video and PDF's. Right now we are offering three of our favorite tools for teens for free. Sign up for the course and receive your first tool today!
