Event description


Stress and anxiety is a common struggle for teens.

This often leads teenagers to feel overwhelmed, lose confidence, and not sure of how they can manage their stress and anxiety.

When this occurs, it can feel frustrating because they:

*May not know they're struggling with anxiety, so you're powerless to change.

*Know stress and anxiety is affecting them, but there's fear or embarrassment in seeking help

*They want to get help, but don't know where to go

When you're in the above scenarios the stress and anxiety can build and take the happiness out of your life as it becomes a cycle of fear, dread, and missed opportunities.

I know how this feels as I personally struggled with anxiety and panic attacks from the age of 14-29, the despair, overwhelm, and helplessness in gaining control of it.

When I hit 30 years old, I entered Stress Management programs and worked with professionals to gain control of the anxiety and panic attacks.

From here, I started a blog sharing my journey and gained a following as people connected with the open sharing of the process.

It was in gaining the stress management tools that I began changing my life. As the stress and anxiety reduced, the panic attacks reduced.

In a couple years, I became a confident person that was speaking to groups on the steps I used to reduce stress, anxiety, and panic attacks.

From here, I became a Stress Management Trainer and combine Mindfulness techniques, while sharing from a place of lived experience with struggle, so people felt comfortable sharing their challenges because they wouldn't feel judged.

This event is my community give back. It's about EMPOWERING Teens with stress management tools so they can improve their happiness, confidence, and become the Young Leaders Of Tomorrow that they're destined to be.

This is a FREE event for teens aged 12-15. We have limited seating and the event will book out quickly, so if you're interested in gaining tools, techniques, and strategies to reduce stress and anxiety, register today.
