Is the Trustyy App Right for Our Situation?

At Trustyy, we understand.  Different families need different kinds of support.  You have likely tried several different tactics to help your child already.  Still, you find it hard to follow through and stay consistent on what you know needs to change.

The Trustyy App, Group Coaching, and Workshops were all created to help families like yours by using the experience gathered from our work in thousands of homes to create the curriculum, coaching expertise, and technology to support parents in leading out where change is needed.

Below is a sampling of the issues we look forward to addressing.  And don’t worry, none of this scares us.  It’s actually our passion and mission. 

Technology Issues such as gaming addictions, excessive screen time, and social media obsession

School or Academic Issues such as school refusal, poor grades, disrespect to teachers, and low motivation

Social Issues such as poor friend choices, risk taking, social anxiety, and caving to peer pressure

Mental and Emotional Health Issues such as depression or sadness, ADHD, negativity, obsessive behavior, and food issues

Communication Issues such as constant arguing, disrespect, defiance, lying, secrecy, rudeness, and withdrawal

Behavior Issues such as aggression, responsibility neglect, risk taking, and tantrums and outbursts

Attitude Issues such as entitlement, sarcasm, materialism, impulsivity, dismissiveness, and contempt

Substance Abuse Issues such as experimentation, regular use, and addiction

Health and Wellness Issues such as poor eating, hygiene neglect, sedentary lifestyle, chronic illnesses, and unprotected sex

Relationship Issues such as sibling conflict, parent and authority defiance, peer conflicts, isolation tendencies, and unhealthy relationships

Self-Perception Issues such as low self-esteem, body image, identity struggles, perfectionism, insecurity, and pessimism

Trust Issues such as reliability, consistency, honesty, openness, accountability, respect, intent, and decision making

*Although many of our coaches are trained and certified mental health professionals, our coaching services are intended to supplement, not replace legitimate needs for clinical support. Our coaching services focus on personal development. We encourage participants to obtain the assistance of a dedicated mental health professional for help with with diagnosing or treating mental health issues.

Why Use an App?

Because parents and teens have never been busier or overwhelmed. The Trustyy app is the first designed to help parents build mutual trust, address issues competently and consistently, and strengthen their relationships with their teens.

What Makes Trustyy Different?

We know that to parent a child and to parent a teen is a whole different animal. It’s why most apps don’t translate to the needs of youth budding into young adults. Parents need to trust their teens have the values, discipline, and skills to handle the complexity and freedoms of the real world.

Trustyy delivers peace of mind as it coaches families around the age/stage appropriate expectations, tech use and communications for safe and loving relationships at home and beyond.

How Parents Can Put A Stop To Their Teen's Self Destructive Behaviors WITHOUT Conflict Or Walking On Eggshells

Mike Christian

Back-End Developer & DevOps​

Mike is one of those brilliant, self-taught, back end developers that you always hear about. As a youth he could trust that “My mother would love me no matter what . . .” When he isn’t cranking out new code, Mike keeps up on the newest technologies and every Tuesday and Thursday nights he trains SpeedSoft with his team.

Rafael Pampoch

Web Developer

Rafael has his degree in Marketing and Advertising and years of experience with our dev team. As a teen he could trust that “The most important thing in life is love, and the most valuable things are our family and friends.” When he isn’t working on making the website and mobile versions of Trustyy seamless and functional, he unwinds by exploring nature. His favorite activities are climbing mountains, camping, going to the beach, swimming, playing the harmonica and always learning new things.

Afton Wilde


Afton’s experience is in marketing and bookkeeping.  As a teen she could trust that with her parents “Feeding the horses and milking the cow each day before school–not after–was a must.”  When she isn’t busy with keeping Trustyy’s lights on, you’ll usually find her baking up a new treat or working on a sewing project.

Nicoli Cristini

Marketing Assistant

Nicoli has a degree in Multimedia Production.  She has worked with our team of developers for three years.  She learned to trust her own parents when they taught her “Things won’t come easy and that working hard will bring me great blessings!”  When she isn’t putting together beautiful marketing pieces for the Trustyy App she likes to take pictures, play the guitar, piano, and drums, and meet up with her family to laugh over the silly things they did as kids.

Adriano Rodrigues

Mobile Developer

Adriano is certified in Analysis and Systems Development.  In his family he could trust the fact that “One difficult experience teaches me that failure is not the end, but rather an opportunity for growth and learning.”  When he is away from his work in making sure the Trustyy App buttons and bells and whistles are working properly, he likes to go to the gym, to the beach to surf, on walks with his dog, or go out with his girlfriend.

Lucas Baumgart

Product Designer

Lucas’s work experience is in User Experience, Interface Design and Product Management. As a teen he could trust that “In my home honesty was highly valued and lying was not tolerated.”  When he isn’t at work making sure the Trustyy App is easy on the eyes, Lucas likes hiking, gaming, going out for dinner, and spending time with family.

Cadu Olivera

Front End Developer

Cadu has his education in Analysis and System Development.  While growing up he could always trust that “My parents would be there to support from playing soccer at the park to learning to ride a bike.”   When he isn’t making sure things are easily navigated for our Trustyy App users, he likes to play beach soccer and enjoy music of any type, but specifically rock, country, R&B, and pop.

Mike Curi

Mike is one of those brilliant, self-taught, back-end developers that you always hear about.

Roxanne received her bachelor’s degree in history and secondary education.  She has worked in publishing and marketing for the past 14 years.  In her family Roxanne says she could trust that “Her grammar and posture would be consistently corrected, to help her to become a lady.”  When she isn’t busy writing and beautifying things for the Trustyy App, you can find her reading biographies, practicing yoga, or gathering the family to talk business, celebrate wins or just plain hang out.

Sidney Rodrigues

Co-Founder/Chief Technology Officer

Sidney has a bachelor’s degree in Web Development and has worked in technology for 16 years, building apps for the last 10 years. Growing up he could trust that “It was always expected that I would fix anything related to technology.”  When he isn’t managing the development of the Trustyy App, you will find him spending time with his wife and kids. He loves to make Brazillian BBQ with his family.

Jim Lee

Co-Founder/Chief Product Officer

Jim has a degree in Design and over 25 years of experience creating SaaS products and managing talented product and development teams.  In his years at home as the oldest of five he could trust that “Each child got a weekly ‘night-up’ where we got to stay up late with a parent and do anything we wanted with them.”  When he isn’t looking 10 miles down the road for what will come next on the Trustyy App, you will find Jim canyoneering, doing photography, watercolor painting, or keeping up on the latest gadgets and technologies.

Eric Turner

Co-Founder/Chief Operations Officer

Eric earned his degree in Communications, Public Relations and Advertising, then added on an MBA.  He says he could trust that “His parents were honest people who kept their commitments–especially to their kids.”  When Eric isn’t keeping everyone at Trustyy on task, he is an outdoor enthusiast, year around, rain or shine, cold or hot, with biking in the summer and skiing in the winter.

Tim Thayne

Founder | Chief Executive Officer

Tim earned masters and doctoral degrees in Marriage and Family Therapy, and has 30 years of experience working with families.  While growing up Tim says he could trust that “My mother would love me no matter what, and that my dad would require that I respect my mother.”  When he isn’t busy guiding the vision for the Trustyy App, you can find Tim working around the house and yard, taking care of his sheep, dogs and horses, or enjoying a game of Corn Hole with the family.
