Welcome to With Heart Project! My name is Kristen, and I am SO excited to be able to share this project with you. Having worked with adolescents for the past 12 years in middle and high school, I have seen a HUGE need for positive, productive, constructive interactions for youth outside of school. We are amidst MAJOR changes in the landscape of growing up (mostly with technology, and 24/7 access to each other), and with that comes a host of complication. Kids can't escape from anyone, anywhere, anytime they might need. The natural life situations we've all encountered growing up (going through puberty, the major shift from elementary school to middle school, bullying, self-image problems, finding new friendships, etc.) are still happening, but kids have a much more difficult time escaping any negative interactions once they leave school. It is my hope that with this project, I am able to provide a positive outlet for kids outside of school, where I can provide guidance, coaching, counseling, and an outlet for students who are going through challenging times. Having worked extremely closely with youth for the last 12 years, I am privy to many of the issues kids are facing these days, and as such, students have tended to seek me out to help them navigate these challenging times. Particularly in my work as a Vice Principal, kids were often approaching me saying, "Ms. Miller I need to talk to you. Can I come see you today?" It has been such a privilege to help these kids and work with them intensely to provide guidance in times of struggle. Some of the amazing individuals I have worked with have been dealing with issues such as: bullying, gender identity, sexuality, general friendship and relationships, academics, racism, social media interactions, family struggles, self-harm, suicidal thoughts, and all topics in between. I have helped students find an element of inner peace among stormy times, and I would be honored to be able to help you and/or your child as well.
With Deep Gratitude,
