Isn't reaching out to find the right person to talk to scary? Don't know how to handle that situation with your kiddo? Let's do it together.
Licensed Professional Counselor in Boise,
I have extensive background in early childhood education and helping parents move through their child's developmental stages, focusing on the social/emotional piece as well as helping children succeed in their academic settings.
In our world right now, there are so many stressors and triggers. I bring many tools to help with our intrusive thoughts and worries, and an understanding that we are not our thoughts. We can be in control.
Along with stressors and triggers, we need a good way to unidentify with our emotions and see them as passing feelings that do not make us "angry people with anger issues". I encourage children to learn emotional awareness and work on emotional regulation, using visuals, mindfulness and age-appropriate styles to connect to what they already know.
My extensive background in dance has helped me learn the body/mind connection. I am certified in Trauma-Informed Yoga for Youth.
I utilize an eclectic array of tools and therapeutic interventions to help clients feel the most successful.
I also believe some clients may attain self-betterment in naturally therapeutic environments, such as hiking in the hills or walking along the river. Therefore, sessions may occur at an agreed upon location in our beautiful surroundings, as opposed to in an office setting.
There are moments in our lives that can leave us feeling empty and lost. And then there are times when we can't shake these feelings. Let's talk and explore where this comes from and how to get out from under that cloud.
