Hi, I’m Laura Parks, a Certified Youth Life Coach
For over 3 decades I’ve mentored adolescents and young adults in my community through organizations like the theater, church, school, 4H, and sports. It has always brought me a great sense of purpose and fulfillment.
In 2020 I received my Youth Life Coaching credential. It’s further enabled me to help adolescents and young adults build life skills and develop healthy relationships. I focus on empowering them to make decisions that are right for them by engaging them to examine, comprehend, and enhance their self- esteem, social connectedness, productivity and employability, emotional and intellectual maturity, and autonomy.
I work directly with adolescents and young adults to help them realize and understand their worth and value (especially to themselves), the power and control they have and how to use it wisely, how to listen to and trust themselves, and how to have healthy relationships (communication skills), etc.
