6:45pm - 8:15pm

Hispanic Chapel - Solana Beach Presbyterian Church


Speaker - Dr. Kayla Pray

Ph.D. Clinical Christian Counseling

We are so excited to welcome Dr. Kayla Pray to our campus! 

Having kids is a joy and a challenge especially when it comes to the roller-coaster of emotions and behavior. Come and learn how to help your child(ren) navigate their feelings/emotions from toddlerhood through the teenage years. Dr. Pray will teach us how to name emotions, how to see beyond behaviors, what is developmentally appropriate and when to ask for more help.
