The world has changed significantly in past decades. Teens today are exposed to more, stimulated differently, and are a product of the instant gratification mentality. A gap has been created between youth and their parents. The parents often have solid values that they want to pass on to their children, but their methods of delivery that will bring out the desired outcome has changed significantly. As a Mental Performance coach I work with teens to deliver those very same values, but in a way customized to each individual, allowing he/she to achieve whatever goals they may desire. Through concepts such as accountability, self awareness, self esteem, and many others we are able to create a game plan that is approachable and gets results. The secret to happiness is progress.

Through this work teens develop a consistent state of self awareness. The teenage years is a difficult time as teenagers are identifying their character. This often shows up in social settings as well as placement within their family structure. Through self awareness, motivation, and goal setting, the process is broken down and simplified. Doing so removes the huge mental blocks that have been built and allows the teen to develop the mental skillset to achieve success in all realms of life.  


Parents often feel a disconnect from their children as they are establishing their independence. This disconnect is difficult for both the parent and the child. Itzik works one on one with the teen, and interacts with the parent, to find out exactly what is the source of disconnection and navigates the teen to take on healthy life decisions that ultimately bridges the gap and results in more success academically, socially, and within the family setting. 


Sessions take place in a comfortable yet energetic office, one on one, on a weekly basis as is agreed upon between the teen and the parents. Sessions are not limited to the office and often take place at a park, coffee shop, or hike, as Itzik sees fit to best connect to the teen based on their personality and progress.
