                   I'm Casey. I'm passionate about empowering kids to learn the social-emotional skills they need to thrive. It’s my belief that all children should be given the tools to learn how to understand and cope with their feelings more effectively. My work is grounded in a trauma-informed approach and I strive to share ideas and resources that are therapeutic, engaging, and useful. I believe in the healing power of relationships and I consider working with kids every day a privilege.
