About Us

We Believe: 

  1. All emotions are important and serve a purpose.
  2. Emotions are not static. How you feel one minute might change the next due to hormones, environment, or interactions with others.
  3. Learning to communicate about emotions helps children to feel better equipped to manage and overcome life’s challenges.
