Welcome to my website! I have been a social worker for over 25 years, with the last 12 being in the school environment. I have been married to my husband Don (who is also a social worker) for 25 years, we have two wonderful children and a lovable Labradoodle named Queso. My hobbies include taking Queso for walks, gardening and camping.
I have been intensively trained in Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) as well as had much experience utilizing the "Zones of Regulation" and "Social Thinking" curriculums and the "Yoga Calm for Children" model.
Not all books are 'just right' or are a good fit for each child or family, I encourage you to preview any of these titles before reading with your child. Please feel free to contact me if you would like to discuss titles that may be helpful as one part of a system for your child work through a struggle.
