Do you want the best for your son or daughter?
Do you want to see your child succeed in life?
My name is Sam Miller and for the past 20 years I have been helping teenagers like yours become healthy, happy, and responsible young adults.
As a teen life coach, I can help your child:
- Get focused
- Do better in school
- Build more confidence
- Develop good habits
- Become motivated
- Get ready for college
- Find their career path
- Make better choices
- Learn important life skills
- Become more responsible
- Learn to communicate
- Gain structure & discipline
- Discover their passion and purpose
- + more
Whether your child is a “good kid” who just needs some support, or a “troubled teen” who has lost their way and needs some guidance, I can help.
Note: If your child is exuding mental health issues or poor behavior such as being defiant, disrespectful, moody, angry, argumentative, lying, or rebellious, please visit my teen counseling services.
Before speaking with Sam my son was having a hard time in school and had lost interest in life. His confidence was at an all time low and I could see he was getting depressed and making poor decisions.
After working with Sam I started to notice an immediate change in my sons mood and his behavior started to improve. I no longer had to drag my son out of bed and started to see that he was becoming more responsible and doing better in school. He also helped me learn how to communicate more effectively and now my son actually listens to me. For anyone needing life coaching for their teenager I would highly recommend speaking with Sam.
WHAT IS COACHING?
Life coaching is the process of helping your teenager to identify specific goals or certain things they want to accomplish, and then guiding them along the journey of reaching their goal.
Why does your teen need a life coach?
Most kids tend to want to avoid difficult challenges in their life which slows down their growth and ability to reach their potential. By having a life coach, your teenager will need to face these challenges head on so that they can slowly mature into a healthy and responsible young adult.
How does coaching work?
Once or twice a week I will speak with your child for 45 minutes to discuss what is going on in their life and what they want to improve upon.
I will help them work through any challenges or obstacles they may be facing and then guide them towards coming up with a plan so that they can address whatever issues they have so that they can move forward and achieve their goals.
How is counseling different than coaching?
Counseling focuses on past problems and generally address mental health or life issues such as depression, anger, anxiety, and so on.
Life coaching focuses on the future by establishing goals and a plan to achieve them.
In many situations I can provide “hybrid” services where we do counseling and coaching at the same time.
Benefits of coaching (for parents)
Having to chase after your kid so that they follow through with their commitments and become responsible can be exhausting for a parent. When your child reaches the ages of 13+, this is the time where you as a parent need to change the relationship dynamic with them so that they become self-motivated and do things for themselves.
By getting your teenager a life coach, this will provide them the support and encouragement they need so that you don’t have to do everything for them anymore.
This will help prepare them for their young adult life in the real world giving them the tools they need to make better decisions, giving you the peace of mind knowing that your child is heading in the right direction.
Updates & Comments
At the end of each session I will email you (the parent) a brief summary of what I worked on with your child along with bullet points of key topics we discussed.
When it comes to coaching teenagers so that they will want to do better in school, make good decisions, become more responsible, etc., my philosophy comes down to two core ideas:
A. Teaching them to become self-motivated
B. Helping them find their purpose & meaning to life
The first step in helping your child become a responsible young adult is to teach them how to become self-motivated.
When they are children, they rely on you the parent to be the driving force behind their life. But as they mature, they are going to need to learn how to become self-motivated so that they are now the driving force behind their life.
This is why many parents struggle with getting their kids to do their homework, clean their room, brush their teeth, and do all the things they need to do to become responsible and independent.
Because they are not self-motivated and lack structure and discipline.
One of the biggest challenges you as a parent will face is to help keep your child focused on developing good habits rather than drifting on bad ones (i.e. too much TV, social media, video games, etc.)
B. Purpose & Meaning
The second step in helping your child become a responsible young adult is to teach them how to find purpose and meaning in their life.
Because you have been the driving force in their life (up until now), your child has not had a reason as to “why” they should behave more responsibly.
So many parents struggle to get their kids to do the things they need to do and it’s because most kids don’t have a good reason as to “why” they should. They don’t see what’s in it for them.
However, once they identify their purpose in life, now they have meaning which will be the driving force (instead of you) as to “why” they will do their homework, clean their room, be more focused, and make better choices.
Your child is not lazy or unmotivated.
Just tell them that you are going to take them to the amusement park or out shopping and they will move at lightning speed.
The reason why most teenagers “look” lazy or unmotivated is because they have not associated all the things you want for them as a benefit from their perspective.
Once they make the connection, you will see your child become more focused and driven without you having to drag them every step of the way.
So if you want to…
Help your child become more driven, responsible, confident, and focused so that they make good decisions and become a healthy, happy, and successful young adult…I can help.

How This Works
Step 1 – We have a consult between you and I only so we can speak freely.
Step 2 – I have one paid session with your teen to establish trust and rapport and get them to buy in to working with me.
Step 3 – We book 4 sessions at a time. They can be weekly or every other week
1. How are payments handled?
Credit or debit through PayPal. You do not need a PayPal account.
2. Do you accept insurance?
3. How are sessions held?
Phone, Skype, or Google Meet.
4. How long does it take to see results?
You will notice some results right away just by the fact I am able to connect with your teen. After that, it really depends on the situation.
5. Where are you located?
I am in North Carolina (EST) and can work with anyone in the world.
6. What happens if my teenager does not want to talk to you?
A. Put them on the phone and let them listen to me. I will do all the talking. 90% of the time they open up because I know what to say to them.
B. If they fall in the 10% and still don’t want to talk, then I can at least coach you on how to deal with them.
