Remember the feeling you got as a child from swinging so high you could only see the clouds? That’s the feeling Val wants to teach children and teens who face anxiety to be able to find for themselves whenever they want. Sound Mind focuses on providing tools and support for the whole family by working with the child or teen as well as the parents to develop skills, support and useful tools for everyone.
Val and I worked together to create Speechless, the story of Teddy, an 8 year old boy with anxiety at school. He meets a new friend who helps him learn how to take charge of his anxiety.
Valerie Ostara is the author of The Closet Monster Battle Kit as well as Speechless and Attack of the Panic Attack.
I love to explore, learn and create. I think bad jokes and clever ones are pretty awesome and I'm pretty damn funny in an awkward sort of way! I love what I do and I'd love to hear about what you love to do!
