S4 E1: Grief and all that comes with it.

with Michele Benyo


The grief of losing a loved one can be overwhelming. And to lose a child…unfathomably difficult. Though most of us haven’t experienced such a tragic loss, we can learn from the many things that today’s guest, Michelle Benyo, shares with us. Grab a box of tissues and your journal. We’ve all experienced grief in the last two years. It’s with a grateful heart and open mind that I share with you this awe-inspiring episode of #thingsyoulearnintherapy.

Michele Benyo is a Certified Grief Recovery Specialist®, a parent coach, and the founder of Good Grief Parenting. After her 6-year-old son died of cancer, her 3-year-old daughter said, “Mommy, half of me is gone.” This heartbreaking statement focused Michele’s career as an early childhood parenting specialist on the impact of grief on young children, particularly after child loss. Michele equips parents and other caring adults to recognize young children’s grief and to provide the support children need to cope well with any loss. The desire of Michele’s heart is to see families live forward after loss toward a future bright with possibilities and even joy.

S4 E2: Small Things that make a big difference at home

with Krysten Taprell


I have found my professional twin! A fellow psychologist who loves kids, loves parents, loves helping, and loves sharing small ways that can make a big difference with parents and kids. This conversation with Krysten Taprell, aka The Therapist Parent, was so exciting because it brings real-life therapy skills into the living room. Listen in as she shares her advice for sleep, dreams, and mindfulness with kids – that frankly….also applies perfectly to adults! Thank you for listening to this episode of #thingsyoulearnintherapy.

As with one of the other episodes on grief, I am cross-listing this episode on my other podcast Things you learn in therapy because I know the content is powerful for both audiences.

Here is a bit about Kristen. Be sure to check out her social media pages – they are FILLED with great images for parents!!

I am a Psychologist with over 20 years experience working with children and families. I have worked in many settings including schools, Private Practice and Government agencies. I have extensive experience working with people on the Autistic Spectrum as well as conducting diagnostic assessments. In this time I found that I was seeing the same issues coming through my door, requiring the same strategies. While some difficulties will need regular sessions with a qualified Psychologist, sometimes parents just need a few tips and creative ideas to bring change to their children’s lives. I hope to offer you proven strategies and playful activities that children respond to.
