Discount offer of the month
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Conversation Cards were created by Dr. Amy Wickstrom to spark good conversation between parents and children, but they can also be used by therapists in clinical settings. This interactive game offers a fun and easy way to teach children about family values, feelings, social skills, and healthy relationships. Each card in the deck has a sentence prompt for participants to verbally respond to, but playing also requires participants to physically move around the room, making it more playful and engaging for everyone. Conversation Cards are also a highly effective tool when applied in schools, youth programs, and childcare settings. Receive 10% off your purchase of Conversation Cards with coupon code: CC10.

This is an exclusive offer only available to recipients of Liana’s newsletter!


Clinician of the month
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Heather Frantum-Mathes provides outpatient therapy at Counseling Services of Southern Minnesota. She is a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT) and a Registered Play Therapist Supervisor (RPT-S). Heather is a passionate, devoted play therapist who has a candid ability to make lasting connections with children. She is ingenious at developing creative interventions and unique opportunities that allow children to embrace their potential. Heather’s advocacy in Southern Minnesota has also been influential contributing to an overall awareness of how play truly is the language of the child. Her dedication is evidenced by her willingness to spend the extra time in and out of the office to help a child. We are grateful to have such an amazing person working as part of our team. (Nominated by Justin D. Kruse)
