Our child life specialist serves as part playmate, part teacher and part emotional outlet for our young Gilchrist Kids patients and their siblings, focusing not on traditional counseling but rather on helping children work through their anxiety, fears and questions through activity and play. She also works with families to create lasting memories of their children through crafts (hand molds, footprints, pillows, etc.) and other activities.

The child life specialist is part of the Gilchrist Kids team. However, she also works with children in the community who have lost a loved one and with our perinatal families to help create keepsakes of their journey.
