Resources to help kids thrive.
Navigating anxiety, cultivating resilience.

Hey there!

I’m Jennifer

Children’s book author, public speaker, and mindfulness educator

Thanks for visiting. The resources here are all designed to support the development of strong inner resources, and the building of compassionate community, for children and their grown-ups. I know how the world can make it hard to hear (and trust) your own mind and body. As the mother of two young girls I am dedicated to sharing ideas, practices and experiences that help our kids build self-compassion and resilience, while joyfully embracing their full human experience and be-friending their powerful emotions. Of course, we can’t help our kids build these qualities without practicing them ourselves. It’s a life-long journey that I’m honored to take alongside you!
