Does your child feel uncomfortable or out of place among classmates, teammates, and friends?

In this immersive, week-long summer camp experience, children will learn and practice new skills for managing social situations.

Using games and activities, we will find the confidence to navigate social situations like an expert – with a focus on:

  • meeting new people,
  • starting and ending conversations,
  • managing conflicts,
  • reading body language and tone,
  • and other social skills. 

Details

Summer camps meet daily (M-F) from 9:30-12pm in Sunstone’s McLean office (map it).

  • Ages 7-9: June 20-25
  • Ages 10-12: July 25-30

I use a strength-based approach in counseling, which helps clients discover what makes them special, and channel that toward learning healthy communication and coping skills. As a former preschool teacher and yoga instructor, I place a heavy emphasis on play and mindfulness in my work, leveraging both to help clients learn, work through trauma, and uncover their true feelings. I also encourage my clients to use the mind-body connection to support themselves. Overall, creating an empathetic, trusting space where my clients can express themselves fully is fundamental to my work.
