Reimagining How Children Access Counseling

Kristina Jones, CEO of a children's mental health platform that is re-imagining how children access counseling. 

Starting with grief counseling for the 6 Million children who have lost a loved one, the children come together as a community to watch, create and share creative video projects. The participating grief counselors who have submitted the projects are also able to be booked for 30 minute 1:1 counseling sessions. Our mission is to make sure every child has the resources to get their grief OUT so they can go on to live a healthy mental and physical life. 


Kristina Jones is an award winning advertising art director (Disney, SeaWorld, Walmart) turned tech entrepreneur. When Kristina Jones was looking for the next tech company to build after scaling courtbuddy.comnationwide, raising $7 Million in funding, and becoming the 14th African American woman to ever raise more than $1 Million for a tech startup, she started with a personal story.

When Kristina was seven, she lost her father to cancer and knew one day she wanted to share her story on how she kept the connection to her dad alive. Throughout the process of writing and editing, "My Forever Guardian" (, she noticed the immense lack of online support for the millions of grieving children here in the US. After connecting with the nation's best grief counselors and getting feedback from over 500 grieving parents, she quickly got to work building, a children's mental health platform that is re-imagining how children access grief counseling. With the use of video sharing technology, tele-counseling, and a whole lot of creativity, the children have begun to build their own social healing network.
