A message from Carolyn Guthrie Lambert, founder of Nathan’s Waypoint:

Who is Carolyn Guthrie Lambert?

I am a lawyer/MBA with degrees from Duke University Law School and the Fuqua School of Business, but more importantly, I am the mother of an adolescent who experienced debilitating anxiety and depression.

For over 20 years I have focused my professional energy on designing and implementing approaches to address organizational conflict and its consequences. Through consultation, education, training and ongoing support, I have helped others manage countless challenges, saving time and money, and reducing stress. My work produces higher functioning organizations with happier, more productive members.

In 2014, I faced the greatest challenge of my personal and professional life. My adolescent son, the sweet, polite, active, social, high achieving child I had always known, began to disappear. He stopped participating in activities he loved. He developed physical symptoms that kept him out of school. He gradually withdrew until he barely spoke to his family or friends.

Forging a path to help my child has been an incredibly educational journey, and I've learned some important lessons:

  1. YOU CANNOT MAKE AN ADOLESCENT DO WHAT THEY DON’T WANT TO DO!
  2. There is no single resource to assist parents of children experiencing anxiety and depression to define the best approach for their child.
  3. The resources that are available leave meaningful gaps in information, making parents’ decision-making that much more difficult and stressful.
  4. What parents really need is someone who understands what they are going through and will listen and help them make informed decisions.

I WOULD LIKE TO BE THAT PERSON FOR YOU!!
