Hi, I’m Yanique!

I’m a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and former school social worker, trained in Dialectical Behavior Therapy, EMDR, and Yoga Cognitive Behavior Therapy. I’ve spent most of the last 17 years working with children and families.

When you’re drowning in responsibilities, the last thing you need is someone giving you one more task to add to your never-ending to do list. That’s why our Kiddie Matters community is all about working smarter, not harder.

And yet, if you want to make a difference in children’s lives so that they can be successful in school and beyond, now’s a crucial time to nurture their social emotional development.

I believe that with a few simple adjustments, even the busiest school social worker can feel confident and fulfilled about making a difference in children’s lives, let go of stress, and enjoy meeting with kids again.

Make a positive impact in children’s lives starting now.

To make a difference in children’s lives so that they can be successful in school and beyond, get a copy of our best-selling Decision Making Workbook for kids.

Anytime you use this workbook, you can feel confident and satisfied that you’re engaging kids and showing them effective ways to make good decisions, a crucial social emotional skill that kids carry over into adulthood.

When kids learn to make good choices, they often become more independent, confident, and responsible.
