Dr. Kristy Vanacore

Holistic child and family psychologist Dr. Kristy Vanacore will offer a free workshop, “Create Your Family Vision with Love in 2016,” on February 13, 2016, from 1 to 3:30 p.m. at her office at 334 Underhill Avenue, Building 3, in Yorktown Heights, NY. In addition to working individually with clients, “Coach Kristy” has developed a program of workshops and groups that foster resiliency and life skills in children, teens and parents.

“Using a beautiful integration of stories, music, art and movement, I teach essential life skills such as developing self-esteem, self-confidence, frustration tolerance, emotional regulation, healthy peer relationships, gratitude, managing fears, managing change and transition, and so much more,” Vanacore says. “I also teach these skills to parents so they can become at-home coaches to their kids. I coach children and their parents to put these skills into action and to recognize how those actions change the world.”

Vanacore recently developed Full STEAM Ahead, a new series of programs designed to create opportunities for children to explore, imagine, evolve and use technology healthfully, through a careful integration of science, technology, engineering, art and math. “After witnessing firsthand the decline of hands-on learning in education, as well as the misuse of technology by today’s youth, I sought to bring multisensory approaches that foster independent thinking and adaptive problem solving to youth of all ages,” she says. She also offers psycho-educational and neuropsychological evaluations and educational advocacy.
