Welcome! My name is Kristina Marcelli Sargent and I created this blog as a place where creative expression and social emotional wellbeing can become one. I am a mental health therapist and work with children and their families in both an outpatient and community based setting. I also have an undergraduate degree in art and creative writing and have written and illustrated the children’s books, Buttons the Brave Blue Kitten, a story about separation anxiety intended to help children develop empathy and give adults the skills to reinforce its development, and Ursula Unwinds Her Anger, a book to teach children mindfulness skills. http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/1493104233?redirect=true&ref_=s9_simh_gw_p14_d0_i2
Through my blog, I hope you will find creative interventions, activities, and inspiration for the children, teenagers, and adults in your life (and for yourself too)! My intention is that this blog will be helpful for you whether you are a parent, social worker, teacher, foster parent, counselor, or anyone who wants to make the world a little brighter, one person at a time. Thank you for checking out my blog!
