"If you think you are beaten, you are,
If you think that you dare not, you don't,
If you'd like to win, but you think you can't,
It's almost certain you won't."

"We flatter those we scarcely know,
We please the fleeting guest,
And deal full many a thoughtless blow,
To those who love us best."

About us...

Looking for Advice is a Non-Profit Organization that has been up and running for 8 years on the Internet at no charge to any teen or young adult who comes seeking help for any kind of question, problem or life crisis. It is a 'Safe Place' for young people to know they can come. Here at Looking for Advice my purpose is to guide, teach, counsel and refer the young people from around the world to be totally equipped with the Life Skills they need now and in the future for whatever challenges them so they can grow into adulthood well adjusted, self sufficient, self confident, healthy, happy and successful. I use my own self-developed Technique called Life-Rules. You can read about what Life-Rules can do for you by finding the link in the table of contents. It has stood the test of time and throughout the 8 years on the Internet young people have come seeking help through my reputation and long standing on the Internet as a professionally run safe, reputable, caring and professionally guided site for Behavioral Health issues for teens and young adults.

My greatest recommendations are the kids. So please take a moment and visit the Testimonial page. I have changed the names and any information that would identify the person but the words are quotes written by the kids. These are just a few of the hundreds of letters I get back from kids, and parents as I encourage kids to involve their parents if possible or later when they have learned the skills they need to work through their challenges. Some kids I have had for the whole time my site has been up. I have seen them through their teens and into their 20's. They come back when ever they meet up with a challenge that they would like feedback from someone they know will give them what they need to work through their situation. To me this is the greatest reward that my Technique works.

My goal as a Professional was to become educated and incorporate the Bio-psycho-social-spiritual of each and every individual with the philosophy that you cannot separate a person into parts. My mindset is that each and every being is a unique and evolving individual. You can read about my degrees, credentials and 20 years of experience in a wide variety of all facets of Behavioral and Medical Health on the About MaryAnne page. I do not diagnose or treat. I teach, counsel, guide and refer as needed. I practice under my Licenses as a Nurse and as an Ordained Minister. I also hold a Master's Degree in Social Work.
