High school, college, and Young Adult years can be stressful!


You may be thinking:

  • I’m not good enough.

  • I’m not smart enough.

  • Everyone is judging me. 

  • I have no control over my life.

  • How will I ever succeed?


Focusing on the future can lead to a mountain of "what if’s":

  • What if I don’t have a high enough GPA…..

  • What if I don’t get into the college of my dreams……

  • What if I don’t succeed at the career I've chosen…..

  • What if I never find a job.....


You may be asking yourself: 

  • Who am I and where am I going? 

  • What is my purpose in life?


School, work, activities, planning for the future, and just trying to fit in while discovering who you are as a person can leave you feeling:

  • Exhausted

  • Stressed Out

  • Angry

  • Confused

  • Awkward

  • Alone

Life can feel really overwhelming!

You are NOT alone-  

I’m here to help! 


I understand how overwhelming these years can be as you transition to adulthood.  Seeing many young people struggle as I raised my own two children, I developed the program "Got Stress?" to help reduce the stress in your life and boost your confidence as you move toward independence.  As I take you through this program, you will begin exploring who you are and where you are headed in life, and you will learn to understand and manage the feelings that cause you to feel overwhelmed and stressed out.  

By the end of the program, you will feel more:

  • Optimistic

  • Self-assured 

  • Empowered to take control of your life

  • Socially Confident

  • Compassionate towards yourself

  • Connected to friends and family

  • Academically and personally successful


"Got Stress?" is an 8-week program that is provided virtually

and can reach you anywhere in California.
