About Encouraging Teens

Desiree was a nurse, nurse manager, a phenomenal Girl Scout Leader and a spouse mentor at the US Navy’s Command Leadership School in Newport, RI. Her greatest joy was the time she was a stay at home mom raising her daughters and unknowingly developing the seminars for Encouraging teens.

WIth this in mind Desiree pursued and obtained a masters in human services counseling focused on life coaching.

She became an author of her own blog and began collaborating with others on IGTV and Facebook Live. 


Observing that many teenagers require coaching, she researched and put into practice methods that foster teenage achievement. This step-by-step approach encourages independence and a smooth transition to the adult world


She has created several dynamic and interactive seminar series to help teens discover themselves and create a map for success. 


As Desiree developed seminars for teenagers she quickly realized that another opportunity needed to be addressed. The parent/teen relationship. With that in mind Desiree has created a parent communication seminar series and provides one on one coaching for parents in developing and trying new communication strategies as Desiree believes communication is the relationship.

This is the perfect job for Desiree! I’m so very glad to hear she is branching out to share her gift with others. Our daughter is now a well rounded successful sophomore in college and still leans on Desiree as a life mentor.
