Does your child know what to do with his/her big feelings? Can she manage the day to day stress, or are you noticing an increase in anxiety, frustration, withdrawal, or overwhelm? Kids who understand how to regulate their emotions (meaning they can identify their own feelings and come back to a calmer state quickly) make healthier and wiser choices with their thoughts and behaviors. Emotion regulation is one of the core skills in building a child's resilience. Resilience is the thing that...

I believe resilience is a critical trait for anyone working toward being the best they can be, and it is something that can be strengthened like a muscle. I am personally committed to helping build resilient kids, and ultimately resilient families, in my own community and beyond. I have a background as a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist. However, most of my work has been as a Resiliency Skills Trainer with a program out of UCLA Semel Institute of Neuroscience and Human Behavior. In that position, I taught several skill-building workshops with groups of kids (ages 3-13) and adults. I also worked with families individually. I taught the skills of emotion regulation (including healthy thinking styles), communication, goal setting, and problem-solving. I am excited to bring my background and personal style to Outschool so I can help you accomplish your goals. My approach to teaching resiliency skills with kids is especially unique because I focus on connecting with each child in a way that creates a FUN and ENGAGING learning environment! I can't wait to meet your child and begin learning together!
Please continue using the feeling thermometer at home on a daily basis to sustain the skills learned

1 hour per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
I encourage parents to listen in to the lessons or ask your child about what s/he learned so that the skills can be applied as a family for maximum benefit. Because this is a skill-building class, it is not a substitute for individual, group, or family therapy. Please feel free to reach out to me if you would like further guidance with the material.
I help kids bounce back no matter what life throws at them!
