COVID-19 And Resources

I want you to know I am here for parents, girls, and all the wonderful clients I get to serve through my therapy practice and Wise Girl Workshops.

I know times are tough in so many ways.  We are in the midst of a world crisis and a host of unknowns.  Even though this is the case, I want you to know I am still here and available.  I have moved my entire private practice and Wise Girl Workshops program to an online forum, so I can continue to see my individual clients and workshop participants from the comfort of their own home until we can get back into the office. Please let me know if you would like to schedule by sending an email here.

I have been working on ways to give back to the community and world I love so much.  This week I have been in conversation with Hilary Truong from Our Girl Collective to offer FREE “3 Conversations For Parents Of Girls In Uncertain Times.”  These conversations talk about how to manage anxiety, self care, resiliency, social isolation, and media overload for parents so you can better support your girl.  Please note, they will only be available until Sunday March 22, 2020

The other way I am supporting the community is by offering a donation based virtual Social Emotional Workshop series for girls.  You can find all the details in the flier below.  These workshops are for residents of California and are not considered therapy.  Instead this a forum for girls to come together, support each other, develop healthy coping skills, and engage in a mindfulness practice.  There is a suggested $25 donation but no one will be turned away for lack of funds.  See the flier attached here for more info.  You can also reserve her spot here.

Social Anxiety On Netflix

Check out the latest family friendly show about a middle schooler with social anxiety and his emotional support animal Dude. While it doesn’t accurately depict anxiety for many kids, it does take out some of the stigmatization and can create some empathy for kids who don’t experience social anxiety. The program does a great job of depicting how anxiety impacts the entire family and the day to day of life going to school. While I am only 3 episodes in and don’t love shows with talking animals and humor I find to be luke warm, the show is growing on me. Watching a kid make new friends, a family adjust to their kid returning to school, and a boy exposing himself to his fears and grow tolerance to anxiety is warming my heart. And to see my own kids laugh and enjoy the program let’s me know this is a good show for the 9-12 age group. Looking forward to checking out more!
