Karen welcomes counselor and author Jessica Sinarski to the show for part two of their discussion on her work in making brain science accessible and entertaining, and how her Riley The Brave books have helped patients of all ages.
Jessica Sinarski, LPCMH equips parents and professionals to be healers for hurting children. Weaving user-friendly brain science into everything she does, Jessica ignites both passion and know-how in audiences. Extensive post-graduate training and 15+ years as a clinician, consultant, and parent educator led her to create BraveBrains, a resource and training platform for home, school, and community. She is also the author of the Riley the Brave picture books.
Jessica partners with school districts and child welfare agencies across the country to better incorporate effective trauma-sensitive practices into their work. When not writing and training, she continues to work as a bilingual therapist and clinical supervisor at an innovative adoption support agency. Jessica lives in Delaware with her husband and three busy boys.
