Help Your Teen Unlock Their Greatest Potential


At Positive Presence, the distinction between therapy and life coaching lies in the approach and focus. While therapy typically delves into the diagnosis and treatment of mental health disorders, often exploring past traumas and unresolved issues, Positive Presence life coaching is geared towards personal growth, goal setting, and fostering positive change in the present and future. Our certified mentor-coaches provide guidance, support, and practical tools to help individuals, particularly teens and young adults, build self-esteem, enhance resilience, and achieve their goals. It’s a forward-looking partnership that empowers clients to develop life skills, navigate challenges, and thrive in their journey toward becoming their best selves, without the clinical therapeutic framework.

Positive Presence Global offers flexible pricing packages designed to meet the unique needs of each client. Our flagship 1+1 Mentor-Coaching package is a comprehensive and highly personalized program that includes a minimum of (1) 1-hour coaching session every other week with a certified mentor-coach who is carefully matched to the client’s specific needs and goals. What sets our program apart is the complimentary 24/7 video-to-video, private, confidential access between the student and their coach, promoting continuous support and growth. Additionally, clients gain access to our extensive resource library, valued at $25,000, comprising Positive Psychology tools and other resources curated to aid personal development. With our commitment to fostering positive change, we offer both 6-month and 12-month service agreements, ensuring our clients have the time and support they need to develop long-term, life-changing skills and self-efficacy.

Absolutely! We offer (1) one-hour coaching sessions bi-weekly OR weekly.  We are committed to providing a personalized experience for each client, so if there is a specific need for additional sessions, our certified mentor-coaches will work closely with the client to accommodate their requirements. These additional sessions can be scheduled based on the client’s preferences and goals.

Our goal is to support our clients in the way that best suits their individual journey towards personal growth, empowerment, and positive change, and we are flexible in adapting our coaching arrangements to meet their needs effectively.

The minimum six-month service agreement at Positive Presence Global is in place to foster the development of strong, long-term relationships between our certified mentor-coaches and our clients. Personal growth, self-discovery, and positive transformation take time, and we believe that sustained support over an extended period is essential for achieving meaningful and lasting change. This commitment ensures that our clients have the opportunity to delve deeply into their personal development journey, build trust and rapport with their mentor-coach, and implement the tools and strategies they learn effectively. It aligns with our mission to empower teens and young adults to become their best selves and addresses the fact that change is a gradual and ongoing process, requiring consistent support and guidance over time.

Due to the extremely personal nature of these services, ONLY one year long service agreements are able to be early canceled.  Three month, six month, and one year service agreements are able to be paused for a max of 30 days throughout the length of the service agreement.  If necessary, coaching services may be transferred to anyone anytime.

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, reimbursements are approved.

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

Our certified mentor-coaches at Positive Presence Global are equipped to provide guidance and support for a wide range of challenges and personal development goals faced by teens and young adults. These challenges may include but are not limited to issues related to self-esteem, confidence, stress management, goal-setting, communication skills, relationships, resilience-building, time management, and personal growth. Our mentor-coaches are trained to address over 500 different scenarios, offering a tailored approach to help clients navigate their unique struggles and aspirations. Whether it’s overcoming obstacles, managing emotions, or achieving personal milestones, our mentor-coaches empower clients to develop the skills and mindset needed to thrive in today’s complex world.

The term ‘mentor-coach’ was coined and trademarked by our Founder – Michelle Marie King.

We use the term “mentor-coaching” at Positive Presence Global instead of “life coaching” because it reflects the unique and holistic approach we take in guiding and supporting our clients, who are primarily teens and young adults. While traditional life coaching often focuses on goal setting and personal development, mentor-coaching goes beyond this by emphasizing the role of the coach as a mentor and guide. Our mentor-coaches draw from their own life experiences to connect with and inspire our clients, creating a relatable and trusting relationship. Moreover, the term “mentor-coaching” underscores our commitment to providing not only practical tools and strategies but also mentorship and emotional support, which are especially crucial during the formative years of adolescence and young adulthood. It emphasizes our role as both coaches and mentors in helping individuals become their best selves and navigate the challenges of this transitional phase of life.

When you join mentor-coaching at Positive Presence Global, you gain access to a comprehensive and personalized support system designed to help you thrive in various aspects of life. Here’s what you can expect:

Certified Mentor-Coach: You will be paired with a certified mentor-coach who is carefully matched to your specific needs, goals, and personality, ensuring a strong and supportive coaching relationship.

Personalized Coaching Sessions: Your mentor-coach will conduct regular one-on-one coaching sessions with you. These sessions are tailored to your unique challenges, aspirations, and areas for growth.

24/7 Video-to-Video Access: You’ll have complimentary 24/7 video-to-video access to your mentor-coach, allowing you to seek guidance and support whenever you need it. This feature promotes continuous growth and accountability.

Resource Library: Gain access to our extensive resource library valued at $25,000, which includes Positive Psychology tools, worksheets, articles, and other resources curated to aid your personal development journey.

Goal Setting and Strategies: Work with your mentor-coach to set and achieve specific, actionable goals. Develop strategies to overcome challenges and build skills in areas such as confidence, communication, and resilience.

Confidentiality and Trust: Your mentor-coach will create a safe and non-judgmental space where you can openly discuss your thoughts and feelings. Everything you share is kept confidential, except in situations where there is a concern for your safety or the safety of others.

Continuous Support: Mentor-coaching is a long-term commitment aimed at fostering lasting change. Your mentor-coach will support you throughout your personal growth journey, helping you develop self-efficacy and the tools to navigate life’s challenges effectively.

Positive Presence Community: Become part of the Positive Presence Global community, where you can connect with others who share similar experiences and goals. Attend events, webinars, and workshops designed to enhance your personal development.

In essence, mentor-coaching at Positive Presence Global provides you with a holistic, personalized, and continuous support system aimed at empowering you to become your best self, achieve your goals, and navigate life’s challenges with confidence and resilience.

At Positive Presence Global, we primarily work with teens and young adults, typically ranging in age from 12 to 25 years old. This focus on this age group is intentional and driven by our mission and expertise.

Critical Developmental Stage: Adolescence and young adulthood are crucial developmental stages where individuals face numerous challenges and transitions. These years are marked by identity formation, building self-esteem, managing academic and social pressures, and making critical life decisions. We believe that providing support during this formative period can have a profound impact on an individual’s future success and well-being.

Preventing Teenage Suicide: Our overarching mission is to eradicate teenage suicide globally by 2035. Tragically, suicide is one of the leading causes of death among young people. By focusing on this age group, we aim to provide the skills, resilience, and support needed to prevent teen suicide and create a positive ripple effect in families and communities.

Tailored Support: Teens and young adults have unique needs and communication styles. Our certified mentor-coaches are trained to connect with this demographic, providing relatable guidance and fostering trust. We tailor our coaching programs to address the specific challenges and aspirations of this age group, helping them develop the skills and mindset for success.

Life-Long Impact: By empowering young individuals during their formative years, we aim to instill positive life skills, resilience, and a growth mindset that will benefit them throughout their lives. The impact of mentor-coaching during adolescence and young adulthood can extend far into the future, contributing to happier, more fulfilling lives.

In summary, our primary focus on teens and young adults aligns with our mission to prevent teenage suicide, provides tailored support during a critical developmental stage, and aims to create a positive, long-lasting impact on the lives of young individuals and their communities.

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 from our website

Step 2: Schedule a Quick Phone Call: A member of our team will reach out to schedule a short phone call with you to answer all of your logistical questions and learn more about our programs to determine if we are a good fit.

Step 3: A Meet & Greet with the Prospective Coach: This 30-60 minute complimentary Google Meet is designed for the prospective student and their uniquely matched Positive Presence mentor-coach to determine if this is a good fit. 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.

After the meet & greet, if everything goes well, coaching is able to start within 24 hours, or at the preferred pace and coaching cadence of the family we are working with.

We use Google Meet for our virtual coaching sessions, however, it’s common for our mentor-coaches to accommodate our student’s comfortability if they want to start with Facetime or a phone call.  Our intention is to work all of our virtual students up to a face-to-face interaction via Google Meet.

Once coaching begins at Positive Presence Global, parents can choose their level of involvement based on their teen’s preferences and needs. We encourage open communication between parents, teens, and mentor-coaches, allowing parents to stay informed about their child’s progress and goals. Parents can have periodic check-ins with the mentor-coach to discuss their teen’s development, and they can also access our exclusive complimentary parent Facebook group, which provides additional resources and support. However, the extent of parental involvement is flexible, and some teens may prefer a more independent coaching experience. Ultimately, our approach respects the autonomy of both teens and parents while fostering a collaborative environment that supports the best interests of the teen’s personal growth journey.

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. 

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 unless they mention hurting themselves or others, or breaking the law at which point the emergency contact on file will be contacted.  Our student confidentiality policy allows 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.

The Positive Presence Global mentor-coaching program has been highly successful in empowering teens and young adults to achieve personal growth and positive transformation. While the definition of success varies from individual to individual, our program consistently produces positive outcomes. Here are key indicators of our program’s success:

Self-Reported Growth: A significant majority of our clients report notable improvements in areas such as self-esteem, time management, goal setting, emotional awareness, and resilience within just six months of mentor-coaching.

Long-Term Impact: Our focus on long-term relationships and development helps clients build skills and mindsets that have a lasting impact, extending well beyond the duration of the coaching program.

Client Testimonials: We have received positive feedback and testimonials from clients and their families attesting to the program’s effectiveness in improving their lives and fostering personal growth.

Reduction in Suicidal Ideation: As part of our mission to eradicate teenage suicide, our program has helped reduce suicidal ideation and promote mental well-being among our clients.

Community Impact: The Positive Presence Global community, including our exclusive parent Facebook group, offers ongoing support and resources, further contributing to the success of our clients and their families.

Flexible Approach: Our ability to tailor coaching to individual needs and challenges allows us to address a wide range of issues, enhancing the program’s effectiveness.

While individual results may vary, the Positive Presence Global mentor-coaching program’s success is underpinned by a commitment to personalized support, long-term relationships, and a mission to empower teens and young adults to become their best selves.

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

Mentor-coaching sessions at Positive Presence Global are typically designed to be 60 minutes in duration, which allows for a comprehensive and productive coaching experience. However, the exact duration of sessions can be flexible and may vary based on individual needs and preferences. Some clients may benefit from slightly shorter or longer sessions, which can be discussed and arranged with their certified mentor-coach. The goal is to ensure that each session is effective and tailored to address the client’s unique challenges and goals while maintaining a balance that supports their growth and engagement in the coaching process.

Mentor-coaches at Positive Presence Global undergo a rigorous qualification and training process to provide the specialized support needed for teens and young adults. Here are the key qualifications and steps involved:

Interview Process: Prospective mentor-coaches go through a meticulous interview process that includes multiple interviews with our selection committee.

Background Screening: A national background screening is conducted to ensure the safety and trustworthiness of potential mentor-coaches.

Reference Checks: Positive Presence Global conducts reference checks to gather insights into the candidate’s character and qualifications.

Online Presence Review: An online social media review and analysis are performed to ensure that a candidate’s public persona aligns with the positive brand and values of Positive Presence Global.

Non-Disclosure Agreements (NDAs): Once selected, mentor-coaches sign strictly enforced non-disclosure and confidentiality agreements to protect the privacy and security of clients and their families.

Certification Program: Approved mentor-coaches participate in a proprietary 30-day intensive certification program. This hands-on experience ensures they gain a deep understanding of Positive Presence Global’s coaching philosophy, S.E.L.F. model, P.I.L.L.A.R.S., and the ‘Perspective Coaching Process.’

Extensive Training: Mentor-coaches are trained to handle over 500 different scenarios that clients may face, ensuring they have the expertise to provide effective guidance and support.

Ongoing Professional Development: Positive Presence Global emphasizes ongoing professional development to keep mentor-coaches up-to-date with the latest coaching techniques and approaches.

These stringent qualification processes and extensive training help ensure that mentor-coaches at Positive Presence Global are not only highly skilled but also deeply committed to providing the highest level of support to teens and young adults, making them well-equipped to guide clients toward personal growth and empowerment.

All of our sessions are done as Face-to-Face video chats on Google Meet. We believe this ‘tele-coaching experience’ allows our students to gain a broader perspective of life and support from mentor-coaches across the country who are uniquely matched to their students.

Teenagers and young adults often prefer the Positive Presence Mentor-Coaching Program for several reasons:

Relatability: Positive Presence mentor-coaches are carefully matched to clients based on their unique needs and experiences. Many of our mentor-coaches have faced similar challenges during their own youth, making them relatable and credible sources of support.

Trust and Connection: Mentor-coaches at Positive Presence build strong and trusting relationships with their clients. This trust is essential for young individuals who may be hesitant to open up to adults or professionals.

Personalized Approach: The program is highly personalized to meet the specific needs and goals of each client. This individualized approach ensures that clients receive guidance and support tailored to their circumstances.

Confidentiality: Positive Presence Global maintains a strict confidentiality policy, allowing clients to share their thoughts and feelings in a safe and non-judgmental environment. This encourages authenticity and vulnerability.

Flexibility: The program offers flexibility in terms of session length and frequency, allowing clients to adapt coaching to their schedules and preferences.

Positive Community: Clients become part of the Positive Presence Global community, connecting with others who share similar experiences and goals. This sense of belonging can be empowering and reassuring.

Long-Term Impact: The program focuses on long-term relationships and skills development, aiming for lasting personal growth and positive change that extends beyond the coaching duration.

Comprehensive Resources: Clients have access to a vast resource library and ongoing support through video-to-video communication, ensuring continuous learning and development.

Positive Outcomes: Many clients and their families report positive outcomes and personal growth as a result of their involvement in the program.

Mission-Driven Approach: Positive Presence Global is committed to eradicating teenage suicide by empowering young individuals. Clients and their families often resonate with this mission and the broader goal of fostering mental and emotional well-being.

Overall, the Positive Presence Mentor-Coaching Program’s success in empowering teens and young adults stems from its client-centered, relatable, and personalized approach, creating a supportive and transformative experience for young individuals and their families.

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.

A Fun Fact:
