Have We Met Yet?

...But I want to be real with you here... Eight years ago I found myself on the brink of burn-out. I never felt like I could catch up. I was constantly running around my school “putting out fires.” This reactive counseling style was not sustainable and it was fueled by a mistake I made early on in my career. When a child had a problem, I would swoop in and try to be the amazing counselor who was able to calm down and de-escalate the child. The issue was that I became their coping skill. This was problematic because it was not empowering to the child at all.

Then I made a conscious change. I shifted my focus from a reactive style to a more preventative approach. This way I could help empower all children by teaching them these important social-emotional skills. In 2013 I began the early stages of developing Skills for Big Feelings as a way to offer preventative, tier-one mental health support for my

students. And it was with that pivot in approach when I began to start loving my career again.  I’ve refined this program over the years and it has since been used by myself, other counselors, and teachers in small groups, whole classroom, and individual settings. I know this program helps kids and I am so thrilled to share it with you today!

Not Sure if Skills for Big Feelings is Right For You?

This is for You if:
