Christian Coaching For Adolescents

You are the light of the world…
Matthew 5:14 ESV


Christain Adolescents Often Struggle With:

Peer Pressure
Unhealthy Relationships
Toxic Technology
Lack of Confidence in Jesus
Unfortunately, adolescents who firmly stand on the Word of Jesus are becoming few and fewer. It is much easier for an adolescent to follow the crowd and participate in worldly behavior than it is to profess their faith for Christ.

Deep down your child wants to please you and God, but often times they don’t know HOW.

Paul discusses this same dilemma in his letter to the Romans:

… For I have the desire to do what is good, but I cannot carry it out.

For I do not do the good I want, but the evil I do not want is what I keep on doing.

Romans 7:18-19 ESV


You Are Right to be Concerned

  • Peer pressure can hinder your child from growing their relationship with Christ.
  • Unhealthy relationships can lead to your child feeling empty inside.
  • Toxic technology can lead to anxiety and depression.
  • Lack of confidence in Christ can lead to a child who never maximizes their potential.
  • Bullying, jealousy, lying, lust, and pride will hinder your child from growing their relationship with Christ.

Christain adolescents also struggle with some of the same issues as their peers:

Poor Academic Performance
Identity Issues
Eating Disorders
Low Self-Esteem
Parent / Child Conflict

These struggles may explain this shocking statistic: 
“66% of Christains will stop attending church when they graduate high school.”

So how can we help adolescents overcome these struggles?


What Have You Tried?

Like most Christian parents, you encourage your child to do the following:

Read Bible/Pray
Attend Youth Camps
Attend Church Services
Serve At Their Church
These are very necessary for adolescents who want to grow in their faith.
Even with all of your encouragement and guidance as a parent, you notice that something is missing.

They read the Bible but do not fully understand how it applies to their life.

They go to church, but their church friends share the same unhealthy desires.

They attend youth camps, but the feeling wears off after a few weeks.

They serve at their church, but they do not openly share the struggles that cause guilt and shame.

What else can parents do to help their child live out their faith in Christ?


Hi I’m Dr. RJ

In orthodontic residency, I continued to lead adolescents but I also started studying psychology and the power of the mind. Shorty after graduation, I opened my own orthodontic practice in Austin, TX.  It was important for me to have my own practice so I could worship Jesus while I see patients. After the first year of practice, I experienced something unusual. A mom contacted asking me to remove her daughter’s braces because she had an eating disorder. It blew my mind. They were a nice Christian family. The parents had great jobs. They served at church. The kids were kind and smart. How could my patient suffer from an eating disorder? I didn’t hear from them for 9 months. Finally the mom called and told me that therapy was not working. She asked if I knew of a Christian therapist. So they tried a new therapist. Six months later the mom called me and told me that her daughter had given up. “She is tired of talking to therapists about her problems. “ So the mom asked me if  I could talk to her. She knew I was a youth leader at my church. So I agreed to meet with her and after the first conversion, I told the mom that she didn’t need a therapists. She needs a life coach. Her words reminded me of the same words I spoke in residency when experienced one of my biggest trials at the times. “I am not enough.” A life coach helped me so naturally that was my recommendation. There was only one problem. After searching all over the US we could not find one life coach that specialized in working with adolescents. After prayer, I felt I was called to be the first. Immediately, I enrolled in a life coaching certification and after completing the program, I began to coach her. This was the sign that I was on the right path. One month after coaching her, she was completely healed. No longer, did she suffer from an eating disorder.

Since I have “healed” over 7,000 teens and preteens. My coaching program has over a 99% success. Parents invest anywhere from $2500-$10,000 to participate in my coaching program.

The gift God has given me is to coach teenagers to maximize their potential.

After over a decade of coaching teens I have decided to not only coach teens for success but to also coach adolescents in God’s kingdom. While I continue to help any teenager accomplish their goals, I have created Light Among Peers for those adolescents who want to live out their faith in Christ.


How can I help?

I believe the one missing ingredient to helping adolescents live out their faith in Christ is life coaching.

The reason I believe this to be true is that many of the issues that adolescents struggle with each day are caused by their thoughts.

Churches teach about the love of Christ and how to have faith. It’s the life coach’s job to teach your child how to manage their thoughts.

Why are thoughts so important when living out our faith as Christians?

“Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.

Romans 12:2 ESV

We destroy arguments and every lofty opinion raised against the knowledge of God, and take every thought captive to obey Christ.

2 Corinthians 10:5 ESV

Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.

Philippians 4:8 ESV

For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he: Eat and drink, saith he to thee; But his heart is not with thee.

Proverbs 23:7 KJV

You keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on you, because he trusts in you.

Isaiah 26:3 ESV

To put off your old self, which belongs to your former manner of life and is corrupt through deceitful desires, and to be renewed in the spirit of your minds, and to put on the new self, created after the likeness of God in true righteousness and holiness.

Ephesians 4:22-24 ESV

But I see in my members another law waging war against the law of my mind and making me captive to the law of sin that dwells in my members.

Romans 7:23 ESV

Our thoughts play a big role in living a life for Christ. Yes we will fall short. That is why we have a Savior. But like anyone who is truly in love, they want to do everything in their power to show their love.

Jesus said:

If you love me, you will keep my commandments.

John 14:15 ESV

Life coaching should be a big part of the support system you have created for your children.

So your child should continue:

Reading their Bibles & Praying
Attending Youth Camps
Going to Church
Serving at Church


learning to manage their thoughts so that they can overcome:

Peer pressure
Unhealthy Relationships
Toxic Technology
Lack of Confidence in Jesus

The format of this program is the same structure that have used to successfully coach over 7,000 adolescents:

1. Training
2. Coaching


Your child will have their very own learning portal where they can watch a number of video trainings that focus on:

  • How to create Christlike beliefs
  • How to manage thoughts and emotions
  • How to take action to grow their relationship with Christ so that they can let their light shine among their peers


Every week, your child will have the opportunity to join my live group coaching sessions.

During these coaching sessions, your child will learn practical ways to overcome the struggles in their lives. With a combination of scripture and coaching techniques, your child will be fully prepared to be a light among their peers.

This Christian Life Coaching Program is the first of its kind. Currently, it’s the only program of this magnitude in existence.
Parents, if your child loves Jesus and wants to grow in their faith, please schedule a consultation.
