Helping Hand

Welcome to Youthful Connections:

Help for Adolescents, Parents, and Families

Being a parent today isn't easy. Especially for SINGLE parents and individuals of MINORITY ethnicity. Sometimes there seems to be a divide between programs being developed and these programs actually helping the current difficulties families are facing today.  

With that in mind, have you ever wondered, "What am I doing wrong?" "What else can I do to help my child?" "What else can I do to help me?" If you have ever asked yourself any of these questions, then you are in the right place. You are on the CUSP of shifting from existing to THRIVING!

Youthful Connections is here to help individuals and families no longer just exist but break generational stories by fostering healthy connections filled with healing, compassion, and accountability through parent coaching, consultations, psychoeducational, and counseling programs.
