Evelyn Bilias Lolis, PhD
I am an academic, researcher, writer, educational psychologist, child mental health advocate, modern woman, seasoned (car) DJ, and mom. My work integrates all facets of who I am and encourages others to do the same! Too often society forces us to be boxed into a certain role at the cost of the many interests, talents, abilities, and idiosyncrasies that truly define us and add dimension to our lives. We are more than any role we are called to serve. If we lose sight of this, we lose sight of the richness that is us.
I publish and present about relationships, gratitude, wellness, connectedness, positive psychology, and the promotion of compassionate learning and home environments that enable children to thrive!
I have kept one foot in the academic arena and the other foot in the clinical/educational field in order to translate, with expertise and compassionate delivery, findings of psychological research to those who will benefit from it most--our children, our families, and our community.
Explore the rest of my site to learn more about what I have to offer-- from free resources and writings to direct services. My professional services target children, parents, and school communities. I offer progressive and innovative packages for working with you to achieve the most potent outcomes for your child, home, school, or community. I do this with tremendous heart and immense gratitude.

WELLNESS, PREVENTION, & PSYCHOEDUCATION
Unlocking Confidence, Creativity, and Growth Potential
Children, like adults, often need to be guided to intentionally harness the strength, potential, and creativity that lives deep within them. Modern society frequently narrows the scope of our children's ability to access and celebrate the powerful gifts that are often subsumed in performance. Through psychoeducation, socioemotional learning techniques (SEL), and evidence-based interventions (EBIs), I can help your child boldly embrace the very characteristics and tools psychological science tells us promote psychoeducational wellbeing and development.
PARENTING SUPPORT, CONSULTATIONS, & SEMINARS
Deepening Connection through Compassion for Self & Child
My services offer an integrated approach to strengthening behavior, self-esteem, self-concept, and self-efficacy in children. My approach is rooted in fostering compassionate understanding in at home and in school so that your child feels perpetually supported and hopeful. This anchor then creates the opportunity for a healthy exploration of the world and meaningful engagement within it.

Engaging the Forces that Bind
I have spent the duration of my clinical and educational career binding forces that strengthen child development, learning, and the health of our children in schools. I am a scholar-practioner, meaning that I actively conduct studies on current matters in the field and then use the insights gained to inform clinical practice. It is in this research to practice loop that I find meaning in my work as a clinician and scientist.
