Confident Counselor Publishing

is creating Therapeutic Children's Books




per month


"Why can't I find any books on this topic?" I asked myself. As a school counselor with 15-years experience, I knew what therapeutic resources my students and families needed, but they simply did not exist! I started writing my own social stories, and they were so well-received by other counselors and families that I decided to publish them! It's been a rewarding process to write these therapeutic children's books about social skills, anxiety, and managing type 1 diabetes. With more support, I can get these books into the hands of school counselors, families, and, most importantly, the children who struggle with these challenges.
