The Feelings Lady

Connecting adults to the information they need to help children thrive.

About me

Hi! I’m Elishia Basner, MS, a school counselor, writer, speaker, and parenting coach with 14+ years of experience teaching people of all ages and backgrounds the principles and practices of emotional healing.

I have a wide range of experience in emotional healing, from in-home counseling with children at risk of removal from social services, to managing a 24/7 women’s crisis center, teaching psychology to undergraduates, and working as a school counselor from pre-K to college.

I help adults connect to the information they need to create supportive environments for children, so that all children can learn, thrive, and reach their full potential, regardless of their past trauma. By providing schools and families with the resources and support necessary, I enable them to create safe spaces where children can overcome any challenges they may have faced.
