Teen Girl University Workshops

It’s not easy for girls coming of age in today’s media-saturated world to develop a healthy sense of self-worth, self-respect, and purpose as they prepare for their futures. In order to emerge from their teen years as strong, happy, and confident young women, girls must learn to successfully navigate peer pressure and negative messages about girlhood and womanhood. These influences have the potential to negatively impact their self-esteem, identity development, and health behaviors.

My group coaching programs help girls make healthy decisions, fall in love with their uniqueness, pursue bold goals, and reach their full potential in a fun, positive, interactive, and supportive group setting.

Who Are Dr. Carla’s Workshops For?

Workshops are for young women and girls (ages 9+) who are ready to fall in love with themselves, take their lives to the next level, and have fun!
