Is your child struggling?

Are you?

Dealing with child anxiety is not easy. Meltdowns, tantrums, tears and worry. These intense, sensitive children and teens are hard to parent.

But what if I told you that YOU can turn things around for your anxious child? Research shows that we’ve been doing it wrong — the intervention shouldn’t start with the child; it should start with YOU.

The Child Anxiety Support Program is an evidence-based, personalized program with asynchronous classes and individual live support.

The CBT Family Toolbox is a recipe box of over 100 cognitive behavioral activities, resources, projects, and ideas.

And my Webinar Bundle jumpstarts your learning with four recorded research-informed on child and teen anxiety topics. 

Does your child have a hard time with:

Being away from you?
• Sleeping alone?
• Facing new experiences?
• Getting to school or staying in class?
• Making or keeping friends?
• Stomachaches and headaches?
• Excessive, obsessive worries?
• Anger, outbursts, and meltdowns?
• Poor self esteem?
• Negative, discouraged attitude?

I have been working with kids and parents for over thirty years as a preschool teacher, parent educator, family case manager, and clinical therapist.

Still have questions?

If you join the full Child Anxiety Support program you have access to me via a private, easy to use asynchronous coaching space so that you can get personalized support throughout your time in the program. This is not JUST the courses; I am here to support you! Reach out to me whenever you have questions, need extra guidance, or want to celebrate your wins!

That is a GREAT question! The answer is that child and teen anxiety are a family systems issue. The research shows that around 95% of families with anxious kids have shaped their functioning around their child’s anxiety. Unfortunately they’ve shaped it in such a way that they inadvertently are perpetuating the anxiety. 
The Child Anxiety Support program helps parents to restructure their response to address their child’s anxiety with supports instead of accommodations so that the family — and the child — can shift to healthy functioning. In other words, YOU hold the keys to your child’s anxiety improving. You just need the right directives, education, and encouragement to make that happen.
Finally, research shows that working with parents is MORE EFFECTIVE than working with kids. Whether or not you decide your child needs counseling as well, you will benefit from going through this program.

The program is effective for little kids, big kids and teens, as well as young adults who are still living at home. 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.
I’ve been trained on the evidence-based program SPACE (Supportive Parenting for Anxious Childhood Emotions) as well as on exposure response prevention, cognitive behavioral therapy, and play therapy. 
All of this informs this psychoeducation and support program.

There are three tiers. The cost for the webinar bundle is $47 and that’s a one time fee. You’ll have access to the webinars for the lifetime of my program. Access to the CBT Family Toolbox is $11/month. And the cost to enroll in the full program — the webinars, the toolbox, the directed asynchronous course AND guided one on one help from me through Voxer is $111/month. Your first 14 days are free so you can explore the site and make sure it’s a good fit for you and your family. If you cancel after the first 14 days you will retain access to the Webinar Bundle.

If you’re ready to get started right now, you can go here to sign up. Or if you still have questions about whether or not the program is the right fit for you and your family, reach out to me and we can schedule a time to talk.

You have the first 14 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.
