I love putting therapeutic touches on traditional games! This activity is great because it makes learning about cognitive distortions easy and fun!
Being at a new school, I wanted a quick activity to introduce myself before teaching my classroom lesson. 4 truths and 1 lie using my Bitmoji was fun! The majority of my students didn’t think I could still do a back handspring at my age!😂 That was one of the truths!
Failure is simply the opportunity to begin again, this time more intelligently. How are you helping to teach children that? #MentalHealthMondays #believephq
“Bullies don’t bother me” to-go brochures or make them into a lesson for small groups or whole group instruction. #bullyawareness

Let’s talk about expenses and time: .
I spent so much time feeling uncomfortable in my clothes, looking in the mirror dissatisfied with what I saw and comparing myself to other girls. I spent so much money on gym memberships I never used, hot yoga groupons I was too scared to go to and let’s not talk about how much money was spent on fast food. .
Then I decided to spend $160 and 30-40 minutes a day to focus on my health. Now I feel energetic, confident and strong. I’m consistent with my workouts (thanks to my tribe and their accountability!) and eat well 80% of the time. I think the old way of life cost me way more than the new one. .
Have you been watching me and wanting to join? Have you been saying no because you don’t think you have the time or money? If so, take a hard look at your mindset and see how much that is costing you. Because if you are like the old me, it’s costing you way more than you think.
If you’re ready to join, you know where to find me 💕

I don't usually do long posts but I felt this! To know that a picture that was posted with such love from a lovely young lady, @emmaroberts
with her aunt has been bashed on social media to the fullest! @juliaroberts
- An astonishing actress, beautiful and talented brought to shreds because her appearance didn't live up to the standards of the many negative followers. Like WHAT??? Social Media has it's positive sides but I swear it does more damage than what it does good. The comparison of yourself to others, the competition you create to keep up with others and most importantly the cyberbullying (the teasing, the bringing others down, the mocking, the name-calling, etc...) The list can go on.
I posted this not only because these are two remarkable & beautiful actresses, but because it shows how one person who thought she was posting a lovely family picture was completely trashed because others thought it wasn't good enough. People have feelings. Despite gender, age, race, culture or anything. WE ALL HAVE FEELINGS.. The negative words people use against others can cause harm. Let people live.. What good does it do for you to trash talk someone else and depict their social media posts? Did it make your day better? Did it make you any better as a person? I'm sure it didn't!
As a Middle School Counselor, I see tons of bullying on a daily basis and I try to tackle it quick but there is so much we can do when we have it coming from all angles.. In person, online, thru the phone.. As educators, as humans.. We need to stick together. Bullying can and has targeted children and adults. We need to break the cycle. Stop the hurt!

Julia Roberts admits it stung when people criticized her looks
Grateful to be a part of a grad program that inspires me to go outside of my comfort zone and do things like a poster presentation at @mycasc #CASC18

In this activity we broke down self talk into 6 categories: True, positive and inspiring, false, negative and influencing poor choices! I like this because I could see some trends in my students negative self talk! This resource is in our CBT workbook under self talk. 😊

Hope Squad training materials for my group! Hope Squad is a suicide prevention program that helps promote a climate of kindness on a school wide level.🖤🖤Each member of of the Hope Squad received a training kit that included:
1. Magnifying Glass: The goal of the Hope Squad is to focus on friendship.🔍
2. Finger Laser Light: Hope Squad members are an example to the student body and can be a “light” to others.🔦
3. Disguise Mask: Teaching students to look “behind the mask.” Students may appear happy on the outside but their words or body language can tell a different story.🕶 4. Pack of Gum: If they “chews” to accept this mission they have the opportunity to make our school the best place it can be!🍬 #hopesquads

I was born and raised in the panhandle of Florida and many of my friends and family were in the direct path of Hurricane Michael. I am so heartbroken looking at all the devastation this natural disaster has caused but I am so grateful my people are all okay. Praying for everyone as they put back together the pieces in the next several weeks. Praying for those lives that were lost. #PrayingForFlorida
