Amanda was honored to be a TEDx speaker at The College of William & Mary's 2021 event.  Check out the talks here.

Parents of adult children ages 19-29 find themselves parenting and providing financial support far longer than expected. Independent adulthood has been delayed resulting in a newly defined, but well established developmental stage known as emerging adults, EAs.

Motivate and Move on will help parents stop using ineffective strategies and start promoting their EAs to independent adulthood.
In 1969, when racial tensions were at a boiling point and black Americans were prevented from swimming alongside whites, Mr. Rogers decided to invite Officer Clemmons to join him and cool his feet in a pool, breaking a well known barrier.

In recovery? We hear you!

COVID-19 poses specific challenges to sustained addiction recovery due to the large number of face-to-face meetings that have been forced to move to virtual platforms.

The need is real.

Studies consistently demonstrate that community reinforcement and support (typically in the form of regular attendance at 12-step meetings) are cornerstones of addiction recovery. While access to regular face-to-face meetings is limited, regular attendance at virtual meetings is essential to recovery maintenance and relapse prevention.

Here is some help now.

The free "InTheRooms" app, available for both android and iOS platforms, provides nearly 24/7 access to 12-step video meetings of every type: AA, NA, Al-Anon, Nar-Anon, ACOA (Adult Children of Alcoholics), CODA (Codependents Anonymous), SAA (Sex Addicts Anonymous), and more.
