SUMMER WORKSHOPS FOR TEENS ON ANXIETY MANAGEMENT AND SELF-ESTEEM/LEADERSHIP DEVELOPMENT! SEE ATTACHED FLYERS. My name is Sam Straub, founder of Samantha Straub Consulting, LLC Support, Strategies and Straight Talk to Help Teens Thrive. Together with Waypoint Wellness Center, where I work part time as a therapist, I’m excited to bring these educational opportunities to our community. I have been teaching and supporting teens for over 23 years, first as a classroom teacher, then as an administrator, and now as a high school counselor and mental health therapist. In addition, I’m raising two teenagers of my own. The age group is near and dear to my heart. With love, humor, and nearly two and a half decades of training and learning, I find energy in helping teens reach their full potential This summer, I’ve designed several workshops to help address two of the most common issues I encounter in my work with teens: anxiety and low self-esteem. SLAY YOUR STRESS is all about providing participants with tools and skills to reframe stress as our body’s response to challenge, and giving teens the tools and skills to successfully and powerfully navigate periods of anxiety. Better TogetHER is a leadership development program for early adolescent girls. This workshop aims to empower young women at precisely the time in their lives when many will encounter a confidence drop. The focus of Better TogetHER is on leadership of the self: learning about our own strengths, developing positive communication tools that will help us connect with others, and tactically applying our unique gifts for the betterment of ourselves and our communities. I’ve included more info about each workshop on the flyers below.
