Childhood depression and anxiety is on the rise. We are living in a world that can be difficult for adults to navigate, and even more difficult for our younger generation. It’s important to know the signs of depression in adolescents, as it can look quite different from adult depression.  In this episode I talk about

 

  • My own children’s struggles with depression and anxiety
  • Why kids today suffer more with depression than we did
  • Signs of depression in kids
  • Treatment options

I’m answering some tough questions sent in by listeners. First, a woman who says her grown stepkids are jealous of her, and she’s having trouble with that around holidays. Next, a question about what to do with old albums and keepsakes, especially when moving to a new place with a new partner. Then, a listener concerned about the drama the ex wife brings to her relationship. Last, a meddling mother in law who chooses the ex wife over her own son.

Do you stand in your power? Unfortunately, many of us do not know how to do this. Standing in your power means that you honor yourself. It means that you know what you want and do not want, you know what you like and do not like. You stand strong for what you believe in and desire, and you don’t back down from your beliefs and desires just to please other people. You become the person responsible for your own happiness.

 

Use my 5 step process to help you finally become the person you want to be, the person who stands in their power. You will find freedom and happiness if you can master them!
