Avery works with parents to build stronger connections and relationships with their teenagers who are trying to push them away. Each teen has unique struggles and versions of “ I hate you mom, but you aren’t allowed to abandon me!” The pushback teens exert is an age-old process they go through as they strive to become independent.
Parents worry about keeping their kids safe from today's challenges they themselves never faced, such as questions around identity, mental health, depression, social media distractions, college prep stress, Covid, and online learning.
Working with Avery, parents begin to understand what triggers their worry, stress, and negative reactions when their teens reject them. They learn how to shift to positive perspectives and solidify strong, lifelong bonds.
"While participating in a program with Avery, I realized that maintaining happiness was a realistic goal to reach and that it only depends on our individual motivation and work. I particularly benefited from combining my therapeutic process with the hands-on learning approach. As a single mother, raising an adolescent, I live and feel the benefits of Avery’s parenting workshops. I am now able to stay calm when my son flips his lid, avoid activating my saboteurs, which eliminates opportunities for emotional escalation, and provides my son with better self-regulation models that he might choose to mimic eventually in his life. The PQ program combined with parenting workshops, and personal therapy has become my tool box that continues to grow in all components of my life i.e. in my parenting journey, in my professional life, and in personal relationships."

"I had an absolutely amazing coaching session with Avery. I began the session filled with contradictory thoughts and a bit of a block on a particular topic related to my family. I left feeling calm, confident, clear, validated, and inspired. At my first session, she went straight to the core of the issue and by the end, I was laughing and crying. Most of all I was clear and inspired. Avery has an ability to listen to one's deeper self with immense empathy and compassion. I learned some long-lasting techniques that will continue to help me progress in life on a higher emotional level. Her insights were insightful and her genuine kindness and concern for success are quite evident. I was part of a group session and It was incredible to watch how she was able to draw out important issues for each of the attendees. It was really remarkable. I gained profound insights into my own personal development and my time being coached by Avery went far beyond what I expected. My future is brighter thanks to Avery. She has a gift and immeasurable talent! I highly recommend her as a coach."
