Helping 8-13 year old kids regain their creativity, confidence & calm.
Hi, I'm Lindsay!
I'm passionate about helping kids live fully and escape the burden of pressure, anxiety and disconnection that can come with modern living. Everyday I help kids like yours to regain confidence, connection, creativity and calm.
Children face significant pressure at school, in sports, in social situations, and online. Often that pressure leads to overwhelm and their creativity starts to fade, their confidence falters, and they withdraw from healthy connection. When we see these signs, relationships at home suffer, performance at school starts to slide and your worry as a parent escalates. Here's where I can help. I reverse that slide and help your child learn to filter stress and come alive again.
It's essential that kids have techniques to self-calm otherwise they are at the mercy of any stress that comes their way.
Using principles of psychology, yoga and mindfulness, I teach kids playful and powerful tools of mindfulness to support healthy development and healthy relationships. With years of experience along with my degree in Child Development I will help you gain clarity on where your child's developmental roadblocks are and create a plan to move through them in an empowering way without any shame or guilt.
Life is full of experiences that are challenging to cope with and for every stress we face there are consequences for our physical and emotional health. This is especially true for children who move through so many developmental hurdles during the ages of 8-13. Intense stress or lack of coping tools can stunt development which manifests in power struggles, relationship tension, and a sense of helplessness.
Stress is normal. Our response to stress is what makes the difference. I will help your child learn to respond to stress in extraordinary ways creating a sense of resilience where there were feelings of overwhelm and helplessness.
Each week on my podcast, blog, newsletter, social media, online courses, and coaching calls I use my life experience, research, and numerous certifications to teach children easy and practical tools to support healthy development, recover from stressful experiences and build resilience for navigating future challenges.
After having their kids work with me, parents report their kids coming alive again, creating, connecting and navigating life with more curiosity and confidence and less fear and anxiety.
It's time for your child to learn the skills that will help them thrive. Let's talk about how to get your child on the path to healthy development!
Taking a mindful approach to developmental stress allows us to incorporate habits that support connection, emotional well-being and physical health. Here are a few ways I can support you and your child:
Mindful Wellness Course
Weekly class with guidance, inspiration & support to make mindfulness part of your life.
Tools to help you stress less and build resilience
Habits and playful mindfulness activities to help families connect meaningfully.
Kids Mindfulness Coaching
Habits and playful mindfulness activities to help kids regain confidence, connection, creativity and calm.
Kids who experience stress during their formative years often need support to work through it and continue to develop in a healthy way.
People who undergo multiple stressful events in one year have a higher incidence of illness than those who don't.
Self-calming techniques, healthy habits and support are crucial for anyone who lives in our modern world and especially those experiencing highly stressful events or sticky stages of development.
Without mindfulness tools, stress is likely to snowball and become worse leading to a lack of creativity and confidence, disconnect in relationships and a sense of helplessness.
WHAT PEOPLE SAY
Working with Kids
I wasn't sure how my 10 year old daughter would respond to mindfulness lessons. She can be set in her ways but I knew she would benefit from them. At first she was hesitant. I told her she could skip a day of piano practice if she tried it. She loves it now. After one lesson she walked around the house playing calm music for all of us!
Working with Kids
Before working with Lindsay my 13 year old son had a hard time looking people in the eyes and engaging in conversation. Had feelings of anxiety and depression. Was withdrawn and often hit and yelled at his brother. Was not confident in himself and was failing most of his classes.
After working with Lindsay he seems happier. His grades are all A’s and B’s. He has tools to help him feel and process his emotions. He is able to communicate his needs more effectively. Has a healthy relationship with his brother. She has taught him to empower himself.
Working with Kids
Our 9 year old daughter used the breathing chart after Lindsay taught her about being a mindfulness superhero. After filling the chart she came out and said "I like doing the breathing to get prizes but I also like that it helps me fall asleep without being scared."
