About Becky Richardson
Becky Richardson is a Certified Life Coach with a passion for teaching teen girls that they matter, they are lovable, they are magical and that they make a difference in the lives of those with whom they connect. Becky is also passionate about assisting parents of teen girls as they navigate the adolescent challenges of self-image, peer pressure, academics and BOYS! Becky helps teen girls and their parents create a nurturing, supportive and loving dynamic with one another at a time when communication and hormones typically collide.
Becky is the mother of two: a daughter 14 and a son 12, whom she home-schooled 3 days a week for the past 3 years. A hands-on mother, Becky has created relationships with her children that are open, loving and fun! She sees parent-chlld relationships (and all relationships) as platforms for learning, personal growth and spiritual understanding and maturity. Firmly believing that children thrive when teaching styles match their learning styles and when surrounded by like-minded peers, Becky relentlessly searched and happily found independent schools that support her childrens' individual academic and social needs this year.
Becky's fascination with human behavior motivated her to earn a bachelor's degree in psychology from California State University Fresno. She completed her life coach training and certification through Martha Beck Inc. in the Fall of 2007. Becky is also a self-help book junkie and food creative. Becky Richardson is excited to join YourTango.com this year and looks forward to helping teens and parents navigate the ups-and-downs of adolescence through her writing, sharing her personal experiences and through her coaching services.
