Why Coaching Your Teen Can Change Your Life
Oftentimes, stress about your teen can get so overwhelming, it leads to unhealthy habits like excessive eating, or an unwillingness to exercise.
Parents oftentimes attribute poor performance at work to the stress that comes with trying and failing to manage their teen at home.
Marriages are often impacted when dealing with a teen’s issues, with parents often arguing about different methods to deal with their teen, & the stress spilling over into their relationship.
When stress builds up and becomes too much, it can translate into a serious health issue, like heart disease & high blood pressure.
I will help you guide your teen into a life of joy and success, in turn removing all the unnecessary & harmful stressors in your life that come with teen issues.
Is Your Teen Dealing With Any Of The Following?
Depression among teens is rising. Social media is one of the biggest reasons for this increase. One out of every five teenage girls have experienced major depression in the last year.
Teenagers may develop ideas, values, and beliefs that are different than those of their parents. This can lead to miscommunications. Teenagers often can be very moody which can lead to intense arguements.
7 to 10 girls believe that they are not good enough or don’t measure up some way, including their looks, performance in school and relationships with friends and family members.
Low Self Esteem
It is estimated that up to a half of teenagers will struggle with low self-esteem. 75% of girls with low self-esteem reported engaging in negative activities like cutting, bullying, smoking, drinking, or disordered eating.
Very few teenagers completely lack motivation. What many teenagers lack is the motivation to do stuff that doesn’t matter, doesn’t seem important, or is about satisfying an agenda that doesn’t relate to them.
Here’s The Shocking Truth:
Anxiety levels are rising sharply every HOUR teens spend on their phones.
Teen depression rates have DOUBLED since pre-2000.
Due to skyrocketing self-harm rates, your daughter could be 1 in 4 rushed to the ER.
A study has found that 70% of parents “struggle to communicate meaningfully” with their kids.
Due to demotivation, 56% of students who start at a 4-year college drop-out before they’ve earned a degree.
With my help, you & your teen don’t have to be a part of the statistics.

About Dr. RJ
Teen Life Coach in Austin, TX
You do not have to be an orthodontist to create smiles. Before I tell you why I became a life coach for teenagers, I need to first tell you why I became an orthodontist. You heard me right. I am an orthodontist 😁When I was in high school, my guidance counselor asked me to pick a career. “What do you want to do for the rest of your life?” she asked. I replied with the most common phrase used by all teenagers, “I don’t know.” So she asked me a different question, “If you could make a difference in the world, what difference would you make.” I thought about that question for a while. I knew she would not allow me to use that common phrase again. I responded, “I want people to be happy. I would spread happiness.” “Great! You have two options. You can be a comedian, or you can be an orthodontist,” she replied (Life coaching wasn’t a career back then).
My decision was easy at that point. I was not funny, so I chose to be an orthodontist. I thought to myself, “Smiles are the logo for happiness, so why not be the guy who creates them.” I never strayed from that path and in May of 2012, it was official. I was an orthodontist.

Frequently Asked Questions
You can book your one-on-one session with Dr. RJ by using the calendar right above this FAQ section.
As teenagers become more independent, traditional parenting styles do not always serve them. When parents begin to coach their teen, they will not only improve their relationship, but also help their teens reach their goals.
Life coaching is similar to sports coaching in that it helps identify goals, recognize obstacles, and develop action plans to achieve any goal.
There is no specific age. It should be based on trust and maturity. Social media will be a part of our life for the foreseeable future, so there are advantages to allowing your child to learn how to use social media responsibly.
Often times, parents believe that when their teens do not tell them everything, they’re hiding something. That is not always the case. Some teens just believe they are independent, and they are not required to tell their parents everything. Ultimately, it comes down to the relationship you have built over the years. If your teen does not share everything with you, my advice is to not force it. Just look for interesting ways to connect with your teen, and the sharing of information.
Motivation has everything to do with buy-in. If the child does not see any value in it or if they feel it will not enhance their life in anyway then there will be no motivation to do those activities.
