Dr. Swanson is a licensed clinical psychologist practicing in Aspen and Basalt, Colorado with over 27 years of professional experience supporting families. For most of those years, she has been designing and leading children’s and parent’s groups to build resilience during times of personal and community stress. From her pediatric psychology experience on faculty at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, Los Angeles, as researcher at the UCLA Medical Center, as clinician at Miller Children’s Hospital, Long Beach and as technical advisor in multiple hospitals for UNICEF where families focused a great deal on the effects of preventing and recovering from infectious disease, Dr. Swanson brings a wealth of practical knowledge and wisdom to supporting children’s integrated physical and mental health at each developmental level.

How it works
Dr. Swanson leads weekly Zoom (online) Groups by grade level. Your child may attend all or just one. These are not therapy groups, but proactive, fun and informative gatherings designed to build the resilience of children and teens in the weeks ahead. Also, you may self-organize a group of your child’s friends and/or relatives of similar age without geographic limits, then ask Dr. Swanson to facilitate. She’s here to help. This is the time for sanity through creativity.
Medical facts vs myths about COVID-19, how to leave the worrying to adults, staying protected, calm and focused, helping and not blaming others. Use art, movement, mindfulness and humor for whole-body self-regulation. Mitigate the stresses of social distancing with social connection in a positive online space.
$30 per group session, $100 for bundle of 4 sessions (can be a combo of child and parent)
