About Me

Screen Shot 2014-08-13 at 9.48.03 PMWelcome! 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!


  1. Kristina your a life saver! I’m always looking for new ideas for teaching my young clients life skills to better their future in some significant way. Thank you for your blog.

  2. Hey! Love your work. I’d love to talk with you more about how you got started with blogging. I too am a social worker and in private practice. Let’s connect via email?

  3. I am so excited to have found your blog after reading your article in the Spring ’17 The New Social Worker about neuroscience and play. Looking forward to reading your articles in search of tidbits for my adult private practice, and for myself, of course 😉 Creative writing, art, and social work = beautiful combination! Thank you for sharing!
