I'm a child counselor, play therapist, and drama therapist who loves helping anxious tweens become confident, resilient, and worry-free. My writing about children's mental health has been featured on websites like WebMD, Parents, and The Huffington Post. In my therapy practice, Creative Tween Counseling, I get to watch young people bounce back from anxiety, trauma, and stress every day.
I made this course because I wish all the kids I work with had access to these coping skills before coming to therapy. So many families come to me after struggling on their own for a long time. Sometimes, a few simple coping skills like the ones in this course are all a family needs to break the cycle of anxiety.
Long before I was a therapist, I was a really anxious kid. These are the tools I wish I'd known about when I was young. I've seen them empower other kids to get their lives back from anxiety, and I hope they'll help your child, too.
When I'm not teaching coping skills or counseling kids, you can find me playing Dungeons & Dragons, hanging out with my rescue kittens, or searching for the perfect New York-style bagel.
