Peggy-Creator, Counselor, and “The Girl Guide”
As a mother, grandmother, and a licensed professional counselor, I understand the wonder and beauty of adolescence–and the challenges. My heart tugs as girls express their private fears about growing up. Toxic cultural messages make growing up more like a “minefield” than the hopeful journey it should be. That’s why I developed Healthy Transitions for Girls®, a curriculum to help girls ages 8 to 14 to develop positive body image. I believe Healthy Transitions for Girls is an “essential prevention tool” for today’s girls.
An Eastern Idaho farm-girl by birth, I have lived all over the West, from Alaska to Southern California, and in Washington, Oregon, and Utah. I now live in a 1940’s farmhouse on a mini-farm in Western Idaho, where my husband and I manage our cows, chickens, ducks, an orchard, and a fledgling garden. I have the best of all worlds—a country life and the opportunity to share my education and experience with you through my curriculum, Healthy Transitions for Girls.
