About The Author

Kim Tubbs is a Board Certified Family Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner trained through Vanderbilt University. She specializes in treating children, adolescents, and adults with a variety of issues, including anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder, mood disorders, behavioral issues, trauma histories, autism spectrum disorders, and ADHD.

With over 25 years of experience in the field of psychiatry, Kim came to realize that medication wasn't resolving the underlying issues. This started her journey and research into holistic psychiatry. She has been dedicated to the study of nutrition, mindfulness, yoga, and ayurveda, as well as new research in the field of traditional psychiatry and pharmacology.

Combining her knowledge of integrative and traditional medicine, she works synergistically with her patients and their families to uncover any biological or thought issues that may be at the root of the problems and together they develop the most holistic plan for achieving wellness.

The Lavy Books were developed in response to a growing trend of children struggling with being able to emotionally handle the common disappointments of life. Emotional intelligence (EQ) is an essential skill for being able to handle the ups and downs of daily life and is instrumental in being healthy, happy, and successful. The Lavy Books were developed to teach this critical skill in young children through age appropriate stories.
