Educators are doing the best they can with the resources they are given (or are able to pay for on their own 🙁). The numbers of neurodivergent learners and students that have experienced trauma is rising steadily, while everyone’s mental-health and overall energy has taken a precipitous decline.
You probably have implemented all of the traditional behavioral techniques available. You have dutifully attended numerous I&RS meetings and made countless referrals for special education in order to help your students that are struggling the most. Perhaps you have been assigned more “hands on deck” with the assistance of a paraprofessional in your room.
But it feels like there is so much more needed to ease your feelings of emotional drain and your students inability to cope.
You’re right, there is more needed.
I am dedicated to sharing all I have learned over the past decade of bringing schools the evidence-based practices of nervous system repair and regulation so that educators avoid burning out and shutting down while also helping students develop the self- awareness and management skills needed to thrive in today’s classroom and life.
I am a school-based occupational therapist with over 30 years of experience, speaker and author on a mission to help students and the adults who care for them, develop the inner resources needed to fully thrive. As the founder of Zensational Kids, I have worked with hundreds of schools and organizations supporting educators, therapists,behavioral specialists, school counselors and families so they are equipped with effective, research-based tools to improve mental and nervous system-health, social-emotional development and learning outcomes.
My passion is to help you bust burn-out and bolster behavior so your classrooms and homes can be hubs of safety, connection and engaged learning.
I promise, there are no charts, checklists or additional lesson planning required. It’s all about learning how to access what is within us and use it to better manage ourselves from the inside-out.
If any of this sounds like a dream, I want you to know that it’s 100% possible for you. And I know that, because I’ve been exactly where you are now and have created a way for you to have this in your own classroom…without any planning or prepping. I have done the heavy lifting for you.

Just click and play so you and your students can begin to cultivate the inner muscles and nervous system balance that support EVERYONE’s well-being and healing journey.
