About Dr. Myka

Dr. Myka Hanson left the classroom after 16 years of working in a public high school in suburban Minnesota still loving working with teens but hating the machine of public education. During Covid, Myka offered her services to her community as a donation-based tutor, and discovered during tutoring that teens had many questions about what was going to happen with the rest of their teen years. Teen Forward was born!

Myka has a Ph.D. in psychology, expertise in dreams and dream work, and an unfailing belief that teenagers are some of the best humans on Earth.
