Ask Away!

I am a therapist but not your (or your child’s) therapist and this is NOT counseling. When I’m working with clients in the Child Anxiety Support program I am operating as an educator and facilitator. The program is structured and directive and you will feel confident moving forward with clear goals.

Some of the parents in this program are also getting therapy and sometimes their children are getting therapy. In those cases, I encourage the parents to talk to their and/or their child’s therapist to make sure that working with me makes sense for their family at this time. Sometimes therapists want to check with me to learn more about the program and make sure it’s a good fit for their clients. I’m happy to discuss this with them as long as those parents have signed the necessary releases of information that allow me to do so.

The group program offers general information about anxiety and asks you to consider the unique needs of your child(ren) and family. Most parents find it easier to focus on the needs of one child at a time but ultimately you can use the resources in whatever way will best serve your family.

The program is effective for little kids, big kids and teens. If you have specific questions about it I encourage you to schedule a consultation with me so we can discuss the specifics of what’s happening in your family to help you make the best decision for yourself and your child.

No, your child does not need a formal diagnosis. We will do a screening at the beginning to explore the nature and shape of your child’s anxiety but that is not a diagnostic assessment. If you feel your child would be best served by getting a formal diagnosis, I encourage you to reach out to a therapist who can offer these services.

Obviously if your child DOES or has ever received an official anxiety or OCD diagnosis, that’s fine, too.

I bring three decades of experience working with children and families to my time with you. My work as a therapist in private practice; parent educator; preschool teacher; family case manager; and family studies university instructor have all given me the skills and knowledge to assist you in changing patterns that no longer serve yourself or your child.

My masters in Clinical Mental Health Counseling and my post-graduate certification in Infant-Toddler Mental Health, as well as my training in maternal mental health, cognitive behavioral therapy, and dialectical behavioral therapy further inspires our work together.

The program is based in large part on the evidence-based program SPACE (Supportive Parenting for Anxious Childhood Emotions) but is augmented by the many workshops, courses, and trainings I’ve taken over the years.

The cost to enroll is $55/month or $550/year. Your first 30 days are free so you can explore the site and make sure it’s a good fit for you and your family. 

If you’re ready to get started right now, you can go here to sign up. Or you are welcome to schedule a free no-obligation 30-minute phone consultation with me first so that you can ask all of your questions directly and make sure the program is the right fit for you and your family.

You have the first 30 days in the program absolutely free so you have time to truly assess whether or not it makes sense for you to join the program right now. 

How Anxious Is Your Child?

You can download a child anxiety assessment and then schedule a FREE consult with me to talk about the results. The screener is not diagnostic but will give you a better picture of where anxiety is showing up for your child so you can better understand what’s happening for them and what to do next. 

At the free consult, you’ll be able to ask me questions about your child’s score, share what’s happening with your family, and learn more about the program and whether or not it’s right for your child and for you. This is absolutely free, no obligation, and definitely no hard sell.
