About Teen Discovery
Teen Discovery is a concierge service for high net worth individuals and families. Over 25 years we have created a powerful holistic model, that includes: interventions, detox, crisis-management, character development, mental health services, positive psychology, educational consulting, college/career pathways planning, addiction management, life coaching, legacy planning and ultimately, change and lasting hope.
Managing wealth for generations is seldom easy. A family's name and wealth can be profoundly affected when members of that family fail to live up to their potential or live in destructive ways. We believe that wealth must be managed both by financial professionals and also by experts in life management.
Sometimes children and other family members with great potential and unlimited opportunity, simply fail to engage in life and thrive. There is sometimes a default wealth brings, which plagues their thinking in a highly destructive way. They have to answer questions and face challenges unique to them.
How do I make life matter when everything will always be taken care of?
How do I create my own identity and not simply be known because of my family's name?
How do I find my own unique pathway?
What is success for me and how can I create my own legacy?
How do I know who are my friends are?
Who do I give and share a responsible manner?
How do I make good decisions when every option is available?
Our clients usually have tried every option available: psychologists, psychiatrists, counselors, rehabs, wilderness programs, boarding schools, interventions, educational consultants, life coaches - all wise options but still nothing has worked or with minimal results. What we offer is hope, based on a unique and innovative process, a solid track record and our own unique talents.
We believe innate Talent DNA and motivations/character, unique to each individual, are what legacy is built from. Our focus is the future and lives built for the long-term. Character, values and legacy-thinking drive that. Sometimes we have to start by dealing with the problems and issues of life that get in the way of that future.
We have seen exceptional people self-destruct, hurt others, harm their families and ultimately destroy their legacy. We have also seen how the best, most efficient and long-lasting change happens when talent and motivation gain clarity in individuals. They find direction by giving that talent a place where real impact can be made in the lives of others.
The process is not simply therapy and hoping a child or family member will not self-destruct. What we offer is a fully engaged approach where we work with parents, family, school, university, team, friends and the world our clients live in.
Changing the direction of a life is never easy but always possible. It requires a different approach.
