About Dr. Lehmann


I’ve been involved in the field of adolescence for nearly thirty years, teaching teens and researching and teaching at the college level about teens. In 2007, I opened a private practice devoted exclusively to serving as consultant and coach for parents of teens. I undertook this because I saw so clearly how much parents of teens could benefit from guidance and how little there was available for them. My motivation and a good deal of my expertise for supporting parents of teens come from parenting my own teens – a son and a daughter.


I completed a doctorate in educational psychology at the University of Minnesota in 2001 and a master’s degree in gifted education at Wake Forest University in 1995. My bachelor’s degree is in education from Illinois State University.
