Connected Teens™

Empowering parents to connect with their teens and build lasting relationships.



Connected Teens™ is a parenting course that supports parents to connect with their teens. Many parents feel disconnected, excluded or rejected by their teens. This can withdrawal or in some cases conflict between parents and teens.

The Connected Teens Program emphasises the importance of accepting emotions, both in oneself and your their teenage children, as a crucial aspect of healthy and positive relationships.

Through self-reflection and expert guidance, parents will learn about their own parenting style and how to create an emotionally safe environment for their teens, fostering mutual trust and understanding.

This course highlights the valuable and critical role parents play in teaching their teens about developing healthy relationships and providing them with the foundation they need to become confident, resilient adults.

‘’I wanted help with connecting with my son and his inability to express his emotions. As a result of participating in this program I listen more, I don’t react as quickly or judge. I seem to be able to calm the situation. I have learnt some interesting triggers I was not aware of. It’s very liberating!’’

”I did Marie’s Connected Teens course in preparation for the teenage years. I found the course really helpful – we went through how we were parented, our own values, adolescent development, emotional coaching, and much more. Everyone knows the teenage years are tough and I really like the idea of learning more about it beforehand, so I can respond in the best way I can. The course is great and getting time with Marie to ask specific questions is fantastic. I highly recommend it!”


The Connected Teens™ Parenting Course helps parents cultivate a deeper understanding of their own parenting style and values, and provides tools to strengthen their connection with their teenagers.

Hi I’m Marie

As an Accredited Mental Health Social Worker and Family Therapist, my focus is on helping teenagers and young adults lead happy, confident, and meaningful lives. Our relationships have a direct impact on our mental health, affecting our behaviour, mood, self-esteem, and more. Positive and healthy relationships can improve mental health and well-being.

While I don’t have kids of my own, I have years of experience working with hundreds of teens and their families. As a huge advocate for teens, I want to empower families to build strong relationships with the teens in their lives. 

I provide tools and resources that can support families to navigate adolescence with their kids, improving communication and relationships. My passion is the intersection between relationships and mental health, and in this program, I bring together over a decade of studies and experience, along with evidence-based tools and strategies to support parents to learn about their teens, themselves, and how they parent.

The Connected Teens ™ course highlights the critical role parents play in developing healthy relationships with their teens, helping you navigate the challenges of adolescence with empathy and support.

I’m not telling you how to raise your teens. This is a chance for a reset. To get some clarity on your values and what kind of relationship you want with your teen and tools to help get you there.

I’ll be giving you the confidence and skills to build good relationships, set clear boundaries and expectations while maintaining a good respectful relationship.
