A mentor offers a positive influence in the lives of young people during particular developmental phases when they need it most.
Mentorship can happen in a variety of locations from the trail head to the basketball court to the taco stand. Meeting in these more natural locations allows young people to build trust in a more familiar setting. By authentically engaging to build trust and rapport, the counseling and guidance happens naturally.
Our mentors can offer therapeutic services for individuals that need to address specific issues that are adversely affecting one's education, relationships, or family. Mentors hold graduate degrees in counseling psychology, so the transition from mentorship to therapeutic work can be seamless.
Therapeutic services are usually offered in an office setting, so that deeper exploration of the emotional process can happen in a safe space.
We can offer family sessions to help parents, kids, and siblings communicate more effectively. These whole-family services help build insights about family patterns, establish strong boundaries, and develop clear communication.
Family mediation can happen in conjunction with mentorship, where the mentor will help the young person prepare and communicate needs to parents. Mentors also help young people better understand the needs of parents and guardians.
