Be the Sparkle

Coming Soon!

Jamie's second children's book is almost here! 

The world can be a scary place. But if we work together, there are sparkles to be found everywhere.

Research shows that frightening news and scary current events can negatively affect a child’s emotional and cognitive development and mental health by causing fear, anxiety, and stress. Be the Sparkle teaches young readers they are not alone and shows them positive ways to respond when the world feels dark. The release date is set for the fall of 2022!

Check Out Jamie's children's book, Tangled Up

Published March 2021

 Studies show that one in six kids between the ages of two- and eight-years-old have a behavioral, mental, or developmental disorder. It can be scary to navigate this world as a parent, but experiencing this as a young child can be even scarier.

Tangled Up lessens the fear of the unknown and shines a positive, peaceful light on therapy and mental health. It colorfully shows how the beautiful threads of us can become tangled, and how counselors and therapists are here to help us twirl bravely through life.
