When we talk about health, many of us immediately think of physical well-being: the workouts, the balanced meals, and a good night’s sleep. But have we ever stopped to weigh the importance of mental health, especially for our teenagers? I

It’s no secret that these formative years can be turbulent. We’re quick to enroll our kids in soccer, ballet, or basketball for their physical growth, but how about boosting their mental resilience?

This is real, face-to-face support, offering tangible support in real-time. Consider it like a gym for the mind. Investing in this is about ensuring that our teens not only get by but thrive with confidence, purpose, and positivity.

How We Get Results


Partner with the Very Best Coach

Through our proprietary matching platform, we are able to concisely match our students with the best coach for them to address their custom needs, unique communication style, personalized life experiences and future goals.


Set Intention & Celebrate Small Wins

We open each session with meta-learning techniques that subconsciously teach our students introspection practices to elicit continual positive growth both during and in-between sessions.


Move from Struggle to Strategy

We strive to never leave our students in a state of struggle. Our intention is to create collaborative conversations between the student and their coach that elicit inspired action to move from struggle to strategy every time.



We put as much focus on the moments in-between coaching as we do the actual coaching sessions themselves. Our coaches are constantly checking in and holding their students accountable to accomplish every step of their personal development strategy.


A Focus on Friendship & Trust

We hold these personal relationships with our students in the highest regard. We understand how in some circumstances, we might be the only person our student trusts and opens up to. The space we share with them and their families is sacred ground, a foundation that is fundamental to our student’s success.

As parents, we are always focused on providing the best opportunities and experiences for our children. One thing that should always be on the list is mental health support. Mental health through life coaching is a proactive tool to prepare your child for any challenges that may arise - an inevitability in life. In-person mentor-coaching with Positive Presence focuses on providing teenagers and young adults the tools and resources they need to maintain positive mental health throughout the everyday challenges of life.

How We Overcome Resistance To Coaching

Being a teen or young adult today is like walking a tightrope with everyone watching. Pressure from school, parents, friends, and the loudest of all – the voice inside their head, it can get overwhelming. At Positive Presence, we’ve seen the magic that happens from our virtual coaching sessions. 

Now you have the opportunity to be the first ever to experience our program and impact in person!

Physical presence does wonders. It’s easier to connect, to feel heard, and to open up when you’re sitting across from someone who genuinely gets it. It’s about sharing real laughs, seeing real smiles, and sometimes, wiping away real tears.

Our trained mentor-coaches are pros at diving deep and bringing out the best in their mentees… and the results speak for themselves. Beyond the boost in confidence and positivity, families see better relationships, improved school grades, stronger self-respect, and a fresh zest for life in their loved ones.

We make sure each teen gets paired with a mentor-coach who genuinely cares about them. It’s like having a go-to person to cheer them on, understand them, and provide the support they need. They begin walking taller, feeling stronger, and facing life head-on.

Give your child the best chance at success with Positive Presence Life Coaching.

Adolescence is a pivotal period for cultivating social and emotional habits vital for mental health. A lack of these skills can lead to anxiety or depressive symptoms, affecting schoolwork, interpersonal relationships, sleep, and emotional regulation. While we can't shield the next generation from life’s hurdles, in-person mentor-coaching at our Chanhassen office offers a unique, tangible connection. Face-to-face sessions foster deep trust, enhance real-time feedback, and allow for hands-on learning. This approach equips them to face challenges with grace, control, and positivity. Why wait to help your loved one feel supported? Dive into the immersive benefits of in-person mentoring and empower them today.

Parenting a teenager is hard. Being a teenager is even harder. Provide your child with the emotional and mental support they need to manage their emotions, develop interpersonal skills, enhance problem-solving, and grow coping mechanisms with in-person mentor-coaching. Our new Chanhassen office offers a tangible connection that virtual sessions can't replicate. In-person mentoring fosters an environment of trust, allows for hands-on activities, ensures real-time feedback, and provides a dedicated space for personal growth. Get started now with a perfectly matched mentor-coach who will meet with your child face-to-face, giving them the tools, support, and insight they need to thrive in their mental well-being.

Our Standard of Service

At Positive Presence we believe that each individual deserves a mentor-coaching experience that is as unique as they are. In that sense, there isn’t just one Positive Presence mentoring program, there is a different, personalized version for every individual we work with while still maintaining our core coaching pillars:

Some days are harder than others when raising a teenager. Don’t let the good days sway you from solving the issues that cause the bad days. Our targeted and consistent approach, focused on mental wellness, provides your child with the tools and insight they need to lead a positive and joy-filled life.


Life coaching is truly its own unique service designed to help the recipient achieve success and fulfillment in any and all areas of life.

The idea behind therapy is to focus on past traumas and issues to change self-destructive habits, repair and improve relationships, and work through painful feelings. In this sense, therapy focuses on the past, on introspection, and analysis, with the hope of resolving past issues and creating a happier, more stable future.

The difference between a life coach and therapist is that a life coach sets clients up with short and long term solutions for positive growth. Clients work with life coaches to clarify goals and identify obstacles and problematic behaviors and then create action plans to achieve desired results. The process of life coaching takes the client’s current starting point as an acceptable neutral ground and is action-based from that point onward. A life coach enables the recipient to take control of their life and take action to steer it toward their goals.

To lean more email

We have a wide array of mentor-coaching programs and products ranging from $20 to $500+. Our most popular program includes (1) 1-hour one-on-one coaching session every other week between the student and the mentor-coach as well as 24/7 access to the mentor-coach via a free, private video-to video app. Coaching also includes access to our $25,000 resource library that includes positive psychology tools & other resources that we’ve curated over the past 5 years. (Prices subject to change)

Absolutely! We offer up to four sessions per month if both the mentee and the parent feel that amount of support is necessary. This can be assessed during our pre-caoching leading up to solidifying your participation in this program.

We understand that true and lasting growth cannot happen overnight. Each student starts off with a three-month minimum commitment to establish a positive and personal relationship with their mentor-coach. Our goal is to always get our students to independently live a healthy, positive self-fulfilling life using the tools, resources and life-skills our program and mentor-coaches offer. Most students tend to stay with their mentor between six months and two years.

While we deeply value flexibility, we have a three-month commitment in place for a reason. Given the availability of our dedicated coaches at the in-person facility, it’s essential for us to ensure the consistent quality and availability of our services to all mentees at PPG. As such, we ask all new students to honor a three-month coaching commitment. Cancellations are not permitted within this initial period. This policy helps us maintain the integrity of our time and our commitment to each individual we serve.

Because we are not medical practitioners, we do not take insurance. However, we are able to take HSA Debit Cards as a form of payment. In some situations, we’ve written to an HSA Provider explaining how our program is mental health related and in most cases, transactions are approved.

If you are in need of financial assistance for our program, please reach out to us directly so we can offer some options.

Our mentor-coaches are trained to handle over 500 different scenarios. Our intention is to be a non-bias third party to help with any problems that you wish to discuss confidentially, including: sexual orientation, sex, drugs, goal-setting, finding and building positive relationships, emotional intelligence, relationship to self, spirituality, confidence-building, time management, and many more!

The term ‘mentor-coach’ was coined and trademarked by our Founder – Michelle Marie King. We consider mentor-coaching a form of life coaching that is a fully customized experience for the students and families we work with. For some of our mentees, we are a big sister / big brother, a motivator and/or an accountability partner, and for others we are a true coach pushing them out of their comfort zone and mentoring them on topics they need to aid in their personal growth and future success. Our mentor-coaches are trained to be a chameleon in the way they coach. This customized support makes this a particularly special experience for those we get to work with.

  • Uninterrupted 24/7 connectivity with your coach
  • Exclusive weekly or bi-weekly 1:1 coaching sessions at our tranquil Chanhassen facility
  • Tailored access to our extensive Resource Library & coaching tools
  • Around-the-clock access to a dedicated coaching board filled with valued resources, including online tools, handpicked links, and pertinent recordings – a value of $5,000!

Our students are typically between the ages of 12-25. We have found that students within this age range are most open and able to do the type of introspection work we are encouraging. However, we have worked with students as young as 10 years old and as old as 30. We believe that everyone deserves to connect to SELF and as long as you can communicate effectively about yourself to your mentor-coach – we are able to support you in that discovery! We also offer parent coaching as a way to provide continued support to the entire family during the student’s experience with Positive Presence.

Our proprietary pre-coaching process allows all parties to learn about Positive Presence, strategize support, and assess goals and intentions for a customized mentor-coaching experience. These brief meetings are designed to provide new students and parents with answers and clarity in a non-judgmental, confidential, and positive environment.

What are the Meetings?

Step 1: Submit our brief form

Step 2: Schedule an Enrich Meeting: A qualified Positive Presence Representative will reach out to schedule a short phone call with the responsible party to answer all of your logistical questions and learn more about our programs.

Step 3: Empower Meeting: This 30-60 minute Zoom meeting is a free coaching assessment between the prospective student and their uniquely matched Positive Presence mentor-coach. This meeting allows both the mentor-coach and the student to get on the same page as far as the expected coaching experience through Positive Presence and to determine a good fit.

After the Empower Meeting, you can let us know if you would like to move forward with Positive Presence and we can begin scheduling meetings for the student.

All local in-person coaching takes place at our corporate coaching center at 600 Market Street, Suite 260 Chanhassen, MI 55317. However, for mentees who might be traveling or facing challenges like inclement weather, we can also facilitate sessions through Google Meet to ensure uninterrupted progress.

Parents can be as hands-on or as hands-off in this process as they’d like to be. Once a family enters into a contract with us, the parent/legal guardian is provided with the mentor-coach’s personal contact information. We encourage parents to send text messages with updates, areas of concern, or questions to the mentor-coach as frequently as they’d like.

We highly encourage parents to get involved in their child’s journey with Positive Presence and be a force for positivity and encouragement throughout their lives.

It is very common for parents to let this be an experience JUST for their kids and take a hands-off approach with the coach.

There is a $50 one-time, non-refundable admin fee when you first become a client of Positive Presence. This fee covers the 5-7 hours it takes our admin and coaching team to onboard the student into our program, create their custom access to our tools and resources and set up a client account. 100% of this fee accumulates in a savings account throughout the year and is used to provide our services free of charge to families who cannot otherwise afford these services.

There are no additional costs beyond your monthly retainer unless you use a credit card as your form of payment in which case we assess a 4% convenience fee on those charges. Alternatively, we offer ACH debit as an option to avoid this fee.

We pride ourselves on our discretion and confidentiality. We have an intended three-way confidentiality policy that protects all parties involved in this coaching process. The student’s mentor-coach signs an NDA in their training that allows them to act as the intermediary between the student, the parents or responsible party, and Positive Presence corporate.

Anything the student says during a session or via any other communication with the mentor-coach is kept confidential between the student and their mentor-coach therefore allowing our students to be vulnerable, raw and authentic. The same is true for anything that is shared between the parents and the mentor-coach. The lines of communication are always kept open between corporate Positive Presence Global and each mentor-coach and the confidentiality is transferred to Positive Presence Global at any time if the mentor-coach needs support with the family and / or student they are working with.

Every student that has completed their mentor-coaching program through Positive Presence Global attests to feeling more positive, resilient, self-reliant, and confident in themselves. We have heard from former students that this program helped them find their purpose, become more goal-oriented, practice better time management skills, and feel confident in making fulfilling, positive decisions for themselves.

We’ve seen how the types of relationships and conversations our mentor-coaches facilitate allow our students to feel safe to explore, comfortable to share, and open to dive deep into some of the hardest aspects of personal development.

Our students are forever positively impacted by their journey through Positive Presence Global and each experience is uniquely rewarding.

We offer written and video references from both parents and students on our website at, on Google or via Facebook. Additional letters of recommendation and references are available upon request to

Our mentor-coaching sessions are typically set for 60 minutes. However, we understand the importance of breakthrough moments. If required, sessions can occasionally extend beyond this timeframe. While we aim to maintain a 60-minute duration, we remain adaptable to our students’ needs.

Once our mentor-coaches are approved to begin training, they start our three-phase Positive Presence Mentor Certification Program – a proprietary 60-day intensive training.

Phase One: All approved mentor-coaches start with a one-on-one, hands-on experience where they receive an in-depth understanding of our S.E.L.F. Philosophy, our coaching P.I.L.L.A.R.S., our proprietary ‘Perspective Coaching Process’, and a clear understanding of how to support their mentees through encouragement, understanding, and openness.

Phase Two: Each future mentor-coach is partnered with a scholarship recipient from our Foundation to gain valuable field experience. Over the next 30 days, (phase 2 of their certification) they are required to put in a minimum of 5 hours of online training, which includes watching client-approved session recordings. Additionally, they must attend 5 one-hour coaching sessions conducted by current mentor-coaches for additional field training.

Phase 3: This training section requires earning a 100% score on our certification exam. This 2-3 hour exam includes 50 what-if scenarios presented to each mentor-coach by a corporate trainer. Each scenario has been extracted from real-world coaching situations. The intention of this exam is to ensure that our mentor-coaches can maintain integrity with our core-coaching principles, utilize our ‘Prospective Coaching Process’, and think on their feet to positively and proactively support each student in various scenarios.

Our training program is intentionally rigorous and requires high levels of self-discipline from future mentor-coaches. The process was designed to impart the importance of the lives we impact and we take every precaution necessary to make sure our mentor-coaches are ready (mentally, physically, and spiritually) to inspire and support their mentees. The coaches that make it past these three phases become Positive Presence certified mentor-coaches and receive their first mentee.

At Positive Presence, we believe that each individual deserves a mentor-coaching program that is as unique as they are. In that sense, there isn’t just one Positive Presence mentoring program, there is a different, personalized version for every individual we work with while still maintaining our core coaching P.I.L.L.A.R.S as outlined below.

  • (P)rotect: We provide a shield of validation and reinforce authenticity, self-esteem and positive self-talk.
  • (I)nspire: Our mentors inspire their students with their own anecdotes of success, failure, relationships & more.
  • (L)isten: We follow a client-led approach and always listen and empathize FIRST.
  • (L)ift: During hard times, our mentors offer emotional support needed to encourage a more positive mindset.
  • (A)bide: Our mentors provide a fully attentive, non-judgmental, unwavering source of support and abide by that code AT ALL TIMES.
  • (R)ally: Our entire Positive Presence team from our Founder to our admins uplift and empower our students through the good and the bad times, instilling strength and resilience while celebrating victories.

In addition to a uniquely tailored experience for all students, we offer four coaching pathways that are specific to each student’s path in life and their needs:

Proud to Be an Equal Opportunity Employer

At Positive Presence Global, we don’t just accept differences – we celebrate them! Universal acceptance and mutual respect for all are at the heart of our company. As such, we are proud to be an Equal Opportunity Employer. We believe that diversity and inclusion among our teammates are critical to our success as a global company, therefore we promote diversity of thought, culture, and background and seek to recruit, develop, and retain the most talented people from a diverse candidate pool so that everyone has an equal opportunity to thrive in this company.

Missy Vandenheuvel

Sales Manager


Missy is a revitalized mother of two teenagers who understands the resilience it takes to raise children in the midst of a global pandemic. She is a passionate mentor because she recognizes there isn’t nearly enough support for the overwhelming number of people silently struggling. Her sincere and compassionate personality is what makes her thrive as a coach and a leading member of our company. As our Sales manager she recognized that her role is to listen and learn as much about your child (or yourself) as possible. While listening, I am identifying a mentor coach that I believe your child will not only like based on their personality, but also one who has experienced and overcome similar pain points, and areas of opportunity, optimizing relatability. Ultimately, setting your child up for growth and fulfillment socially, mentally, and physically. 

Favorite Mindfulness Techniques:

My Favorite Mindful technique is to Shifting Thought Patterns by focusing on the Grounding Technique. Starts with a big belly breath in. Then, you tap into your 5 senses, to quickly and effortlessly shift your current focus. Choose a sense- any sense, and count down from 5 (order or senses can be altered): 5 things you see, 4 things you smell, 3 things you feel, 2 things you hear, 1 thing you taste.
