Meet Maggie Kline, LMFT

My name is Maggie Kline. I started my carrier as a school teacher many years ago. And I got bored very quickly teaching kids phonics, and notice that many children had problems with learning and with behavior. And I came to love them. I wanted to do something more to help them. So, I became a school psychologist and a marriage family therapist. And then I discovered Peter Levine's work. And it changed everything. Because I learned simple tools that can help children to move through trauma and become triumphant. Ever since then I've been teaching worldwide. I teach of five continents. And I developed two programs: SE for kids, which is game based, and a program for bonding called Conscious Connections. And author of two books with Peter Levine "Trauma through a child eyes" which has a special chapter just for educators, in addition to parents and psychologists. And trauma proofing your kids, which is intended for parents, grandparents and care givers. I'm the proud mother of a 40 year old soon who is a math teacher in Austin, Texas. And in my spare time I love traveling, paddle boarding and dancing to the blues.
