Fostering kid therapist wellness.

For Social Workers, Counselors, and all other Kid Therapists.

Every day, kid therapists provide critical guidance and emotional support to children who experience trauma. Constant stress from managing challenging behaviors can lead to burnout and compassion fatigue.

Sound familiar?

I get it. Tough conditions on the job are taking a toll on your performance and personal satisfaction.

My mission is to improve the level of support provided to mental health lifesavers, like you, and to elevate your professional wellness while you serve our kids.

Hi there! I’m Sarah Scott Dooling.

Play therapist. Trainer. Speaker.

When I was 10 years old, I opened a therapy practice in the corner of my living room. My family were my first clients, sharing their thoughts, feelings, hopes, and dreams.

I was hooked.

Since then, I’ve formalized my work with the requisite education, licenses, and certifications.

I’m now a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and Registered Play Therapist Supervisor. I’m also still that person who wants to provide comfort, kinship and hope to others. 

I consult with organizations that provide school-based clinical services, supervise kid therapists pursuing a play therapy credential, and run a private practice. 

I also love reality TV, gardening, and laughing so hard my stomach hurts.
