Teen Life Coaching

Is Your Child Struggling?

Do you experience any of the following?

  • Feeling overwhelmed not knowing where to turn?
  • Concerned about your child’s well-being and future?
  • Your relationship is feeling strained and disconnected?
  • Feeling anxious about your teen’s poor choices and low self-esteem

The hardest part of your day is what most parents don’t talk about.

It’s heartbreaking to watch your child suffer… not knowing how to help them.

Your child is losing their way, losing focus, and getting influenced by something negative without realizing the consequences.

You’re worried your teen will lead a destructive path and you feel you have tried everything to make it better and nothing has worked.

It may feel like your child is pulling your whole family down!

Carolyn K. McGraw – Teacher, Life Coach, Hypnotherapist

I know raising a teenager is tough.

From feeling depressed, struggling in school, having friendship challenges, or just having a hard time, teens today suffer from a variety of issues that even the most experienced parents, teachers and therapists are unable to understand at first.

Often, your teen don’t want to share what they are feeling. They aren’t sure how to overcome their challenges and how to express themselves.

Now more than ever…our children need more support and mentoring to survive and thrive in life.

With the right support and tools, we can help your teen improve their attitude, behavior, and their life. You can also enjoy more peace and love in your home and relationships, seeing your child thrive.

“My son has improved in every way. He was able to get off medicaton. His grades, behavior and social skills have all improved very quickly. His focus and concentration in school is much better too. It is amazing how much better my son feels about himself and his life.” Sandi, UT

Hi, I’m Carolyn k. mcgraw

And I’m here to support your family in navigating this most critical time.

I’m a/an:

  • Teen Success Coach
  • Educator of 20 years with Masters Degree in Education
  • High School History and English Teacher
  • Mother of 4 Children
  • TV and Radio Host for Changing Lives of Teens out of Jail and Gangs
  • Creator of Healing Hearts Program for At Risk Youths
  • Clinical Hypnotherapist for 15 years

High School teacher to TV and Radio for changing teen’s life.

I worked with a 13 yr old girl that was lost in grief after losing her mother to cancer on her birthday.

She was cutting herself, threatened to burn her house down and wished her dad was dead. She also wanted to take a gun to school. After hearing that, the cops and CPS rushed to the school. They all told her father she needs to get counseling, but he did not know where to turn to or how to find the right person to help.

At first, she would walk with her head down unable to make eye contact or even hold a conversation. When I asked her what she likes to do, she responded, “sit on my bed”. Then I worked with her for 2 weeks everyday in my boot camp for teens.

And the rapid transformation was utterly amazing! 

Her dad reported that she came back a different kid, getting along, happier and kinder. She walked with confidence and began making healthy choices to improve her life.

I also worked with teens out of jail and gangs and taught them public speaking and poetry. They grew confidence, inspired their classmates and discovered new talents and began teaching our life skills class. I saw their life transform as they felt more motivated to succeed and go to college. They went on to write books and perform spoken word at events and getting standing ovations on TV.

This is why I love helping and inspiring teens to blossom and reach their highest potential.

If you’re ready for teen life coaching, let me see how I can help. I will ask you about your specific needs and goals with your child. I will want to learn as much as I can about your child’s health, personality and interests.

“I was extremely worried about my 13 year old granddaughter who was dealing with serious depression and cutting herself. We were desperate for help and did not know where to turn. After a few sessions with Carolyn we were literally shocked to see such an amazingly beautiful transformation in our granddaughter’s demeanor, attitude and confidence. Everything began to improve for her at home and school. The work Carolyn does is life changing and we can’t thank her enough for helping our whole family!” Nancy, CA

How does Teen Life Coaching Work?

I empower teens to find hope and joy on their journey with the Maximize Your Brilliance Program.

What is the Maximize Your Brilliance Program?

It’s a unique method to release emotional stress and improve well-being, health, attitude and behavior.

We work on self-esteem, confidence, addictions, anxiety, depression, relationships, managing emotions, bullying, body image, test-anxiety, communication & relationship skills, and more.

I help your teen make a positive mind shift, develop self-compassion, and increase their emotional intelligence so they can have positive coping skills to deal with their challenges.

You can expect a nurturing, supportive, empowering, judgment free space. Teens I worked with come out of session with a big smile on their face feeling more positive and understood.

What People Are Saying

“Before working with Carolyn I felt helpless and didn’t know how to cope with my emotions in a healthy way. I learned coping mechanisms and how to have more gratitude for things. I was able to change the way I perceived myself. I feel like a weight has been lifted off my chest and I see good changes. I no longer feel helpless and I am more confident about my life. Riya, 19yrs old

“Carolyn is very compassionate and intuitive. She has such a calming way and able to understand what is really going on. My daughter is much happier now and our relationship is so much better thanks to her work. She also gave me some awesome parenting tips that work like magic.” Page, CA

“My experience with Carolyn was absolutely amazing. My teenage son is actually being coached by Carolyn so I got to know her better over the last few months when after each session, she would recap all of the work done with him that day. I quickly got intrigued in the beginning and started getting eager to experience for myself what hypnotherapy was, so I could better undertand what they were talking about.

I didn’t know what to expect but I can tell you my session turned out to be absolutely incredible and I wish everybody could experience what I felt that day. Carolyn guided me gently to my special place within, where I let go of everything that had to do with the physical/material world to enter a state of what I could best describe as blissful, where I suddenly felt like I was floating in Lightness, Freedom, Love, Joy, Excitement with a smile on my face that wouldn’t go away for a long time after the session was over… I was completely blown away by that experience, nothing compares to it… WOW… it felt SO good!!!!” Sophie, Sacramento
