About the Author


Emily Roberts, MA, LPC, is not your average psychotherapist. She splits her time between working in New York City and Austin, Texas. She has positioned herself as both a mental health expert and liaison between girls and their parents, with an emphasis on healthy and effective communication skills. She created The Guidance Girl as a brand to help girls, women, and parents feel confident and gain the skills they need to live happy and healthy lives. 

Emily is aware of the challenges faced by both teens and women, and has built a practice by positioning herself as therapeutic mentor and consultant. Emily is a media contributor and is a regular guest on HLN's Dr. Drew on Call, educational speaker, author of several blogs and articles including HealthyPlace.com's Building Self-Esteem Neurogistics Corporation. You will find Emily leading groups for girls as young as five and as old as 40, as well as parents and educators on topics including: technology, self-esteem, trauma, dialectical behavior therapy skills (DBT), confidence, leadership, friendship skills, and stress reduction activities with an emphasis on creating healthy boundaries with technology. Roberts' book, Express Yourself, is winner of a Foreword Reviews' 2015 INDIEFAB Book of the Year Award for Young Adult Nonfiction.

I was able to get a copy of this book during the author's book signing the other day. I guess I'm no longer a teen (I'm 26) but this book caught my eye immediately. And boy am I glad it did. Inside, there were like real-world situations and ways to handle them that I wish someone had given me when I was a teenager. But the thing I loved the most reading this book is that I could still use these tricks even nowadays at in the office or with friends and family. I definitely recommend this book! I have a teenage sister, and I'm getting a copy for her for her birthday. So glad I found this book!

The book is well written in the vernacular of the teenage girl and easily understood by people of all ages. I found the central theme of "becoming the director of your own life" to be a brilliant metaphor; parents become producers, friends become cast of characters, and even though you "call the shots", it is easy to get caught up in others opinions and manipulations. Emily Roberts MA LPC does a superb job in defining the role that we should all play in our lives, with real life scenarios that are easily relatable to life. All teens must read this book! It prepares young women to be assertive and confident in today's high stress, high drama, high tech world. If you are a teen girl, or if you have a daughter/neice/granddaughter/goddaughter/cousin who is a teen, do not hesitate. This book will be cherished and re-read for years because of its practical applications in so many situations.
