Supporting Families Through Virtual Child Life Services

The pandemic of COVID-19 has caused an increase in anxiety with children and adults. Parents may feel overwhelmed by supporting their child’s needs and emotions, while still trying to manage their own. Families coping with additional struggles of a chronic illness or recent loss may feel even more vulnerable.

As a Certified Child Life Specialist in private practice, I support families coping with life’s challenges. Through therapeutic interventions of play, education, and creative art modalities, I help children understand what is occurring, gain control, and express their emotions while learning healthy coping skills. Providing parent support is also a vital role that I have. My goal is to empower children and their caregivers to use these therapeutic outlets at home.

I will be offering virtual child life sessions for individual families and community groups, such as churches and schools. If you are interested, please reach out to me at ChildLifeMommy@gmail.com or fill out the contact form below.
