June 27, 2021

In this episode, Dr. Cam talks with counselor Desiree Panililio (@encouragingteens).

Desiree’s passion is working with hesitant teens who are seeking and struggling with framing who they are and defining a clear vision of their future. She helps them take action and move forward with purpose. Desiree believes communication is the key to any relationship and that we can all use support as we navigate the teenage years.  

Desiree and Dr. Cam discuss:

  1. The impact overscheduling has on our teens and what to do about it.
  2. The importance of down time for you and your teen.
  3. How to connect with your teen even if they don’t seem to want to connect with you.
