Connie Sheehan, M.A., B.C.C.
After many years of experience and training, I found I prefer helping children through coaching versus therapy, as coaching focuses on the positive and present-day goals.
I am a licensed school counselor and have worked with children and families for nearly 30 years, providing therapy for all ages of youth. I have my master's degree in counseling psychology and am a board-certified life coach by the Center for Credentialing & Education. I also have been certified in child welfare and crisis prevention intervention, and have taught child development for the North Dakota State University Extension Services Child & Family Division. I have facilitated classes on discipline, child development, stress and anger management, and career pathways, and I have authored a mental health manual for the Hubert H. Humphrey Job Corps in St. Paul, MN. I also serve on local collegiate and community advisory boards.
I am a published author of two children's books, written under my pen name, Bee Bigelow:
I'm Scared to Fly provides guidance and proven relaxation exercises that help children cope with their fear of flying. Available on Amazon.com in paperback and on Kindle, and on Authorhouse.com in paperback and E-Book formats. Illustrated by Dwain Esper.
Pretend helps children use their imagination to go on amazing adventures and overcome their fears. Available on Amazon.com in paperback format. Illustrated by Angela Morford.
