Helping kids through life's obstacles: such as anxiety over school, home, or sports, challenges in social skills and friendships, school stress and bullying were the reasons I returned to the field of social work. After taking some time off to be a stay at home mother, I realized the importance of community and positive support families need to overcome obstacles in life. I am a licensed social work, working on my clinical hours at a private practice therapy office Play therapy utilizes play, children's natural medium of expression, to help them express their feelings more easily through toys instead of words.

Kristine also has many years of experience working with seniors and family caregivers. Aging is a natural progress that many look forward to after they retire, however life challenges may arise for some families and individuals, due to health issues, family stress, and memory decline. A therapist can lend support and help ease the transition.

Unexpected challenges can surface when raising our children and caring for our families. However, seeking help is a courageous step towards taking action to make things easier for your child to succeed.

Kristine Buelow's Groups

Rainbows Grief and Loss Support Group for Children

A peer support group, led by trained facilitators, for children who are grieving the loss of a loved one due to death, divorce, deployment, incarceration, a long-term illness, or another life-altering event. This 9 to 12 week support group is for 4 to 7 year olds from all economic, racial, ethnic, and religious backgrounds. A group for 8-11 year olds may be added pending interest. Children are able to grieve, communicate and heal among peers; they no longer feel alone in their grief and gain confidence from the group support.
