Hi, I'm Dawn and I work with parents of anxious kids.
Anxiety can fuel frustrating behavior problems. Anxious kids may avoid new events, not let their parents out of their sight (even to go to sleep or go to the bathroom), and tantrum if any little thing goes wrong. They don’t WANT to be that way — they just don’t know how NOT to be that way.
If you have an anxious child, you’re probably exhausted, depleted, guilt-stricken and worried. But here’s the good news: It’s NOT your fault and there IS help.
In my work as a therapist I’ve realized that the best, most effective way to help children is to help their parents. Together we create a research-informed, effective intervention to support the parents in making change for the benefit of their anxious child. We pull in lots of resources so that parents feel informed and empowered to support their anxious children.
