American Academy, a program within American Heritage Schools, is pleased to host “Helping Teens Overcome Anxiety and Achieve Success,” a virtual event via Zoom on Tuesday, April 19 at 7 p.m. This event is part of American Academy’s monthly program, “Experts in Learning Differences” speaker series. Hosted by Alexandra Rollins, admissions director of the American Academy Program, the expert speaker for the April event is Amanda Landry, a licensed mental health counselor and author.
Many children and teens struggle with anxiety. In this episode of “Experts in Learning Differences,” acclaimed author and licensed mental health counselor Amanda Landry will address the concepts of stress and mood management in adolescents and demonstrate how to replace anxiety with empowerment. Viewers will learn how to help their child or teen work through situational problems, manage their emotions, and use techniques, such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, to connect their thoughts and feelings with their behaviors in order to influence actions.
“I love working with young adults to find their passion in life, remove blocks that are keeping them from being their most awesome self, and learn to live a life they have always dreamed,” said Landry.
Landry is a published author of the book, “Guided Journal for Women with Anxiety.” As a licensed therapist for more than eight years, she has helped teenagers overcome depression and anxiety, go off to college, and become successful in their lives. Landry is a licensed mental health counselor, certified addictions professional, national certified counselor, and private practice consultant. She owns a group practice called Caring Therapists with several locations throughout Florida that specialize in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, stress management, increased self-worth, incorporation of meditation and mind/body connection, mood management, anxiety reduction, empowerment and work/life balance. Landry focuses on treating anxiety and depression in teens and adults through holistic and evidence-based practices. She is a believer in holistic treatment, practices veganism, meditation, and yoga, and is an avid reader.
The speaker series is streamed live virtually, as well as available for viewing following each event. The purpose of the speaker series is to educate families about topics that relate to mild learning differences and are relevant today. All of the speakers are experts in the various disciplines of each topic.
