Why Children Are More Anxious, Aggressive, and Shut Down Than Ever – And What We Can Do About It

“An essential read for educators and for all concerned with the mentoring of our young.” Gabor Maté, MD, CM

Re-Think Play Project

Join us as we embark on an exploration of PLAY– what it is and what it isn’t. How can we both preserve play and intentionally bring it back into our lives, our learning environments, and our communities?

Kids need a place to feel safe and
a safe place to feel.

The healthy emotional and social development of children is critical to their ability to learn, develop resilience, discover their best selves, and build strong communities.

Our world now is more complex than ever. There is no crystal ball to tell us exactly what challenges today’s children will face as they transition through to adulthood.

But there is still so much we can do – as educators, social workers, and helping professionals. The best gift we can give to children is to equip them with emotional maturity and resilience – not just today, but for the rest of their lives.

For over 25 years, I have created trauma-informed learning environments and experiential programs that provide children the emotional safety to learn and grow.

Every educator, social worker, and helping professional that works with children and youth every day can do this, without prescriptive strategies, special tools, massive program budgets or specific curricula.

I’m here to show you how.

Let’s get started.
