Are you struggling with anxious, or high-stress kids?

I see you, brave parent.

I see you doing all you can to show up each day. Tired, so tired, but there. And that counts.

I see you working so hard to offer what you can to your child. I see you seeking out resources, looking for anything that might offer answers, solutions, or useful suggestions. I see you researching all of the options and working to get on every program wait list for services, and supports...the wait can be so long. And once you are in, the commuting and appointment commitments can be exhausting. I see you. Honestly, I've been you. 

After years working with families just like yours, and years navigating many of the same challenges within our own family, I've seen the broken parts of the system. I long to take what I've learned and offer it in a way that creates meaningful connections within families, and offers solid tools to transform patterns of anxiety, stress and disconnection. CBT for the Family: Tools for Life is designed to bring families together, create common language and common foundational skills for relating with and supporting one another. And all from the comfort and convenience of your own couch. 

Let me offer you some of the top tools, grounded in rock-solid research, to help you find calm and connection as a family.

Is Your Family Struggling With...

Anxiety Overload

Is your family struggling to manage anxious/high-stress responses of one or more children within your home? Reactions that are disproportionate to the situation and feel overwhelming to parent?

Challenges of Daily Life

Desperate to Find Help

Has your family been seeking support? Waiting on program wait lists, or struggling to know where to go or who to see that will help? Are you using every spare moment reading books and researching to find solutions?

CBT Anyway??

What People Are Saying About CBT for the Family: Tools for Life:

"The online personal interaction with Karen was very helpful for us, and despite the distance we were very encouraged by her personable manner and positive attitude. Our sessions with her helped us as parents to put into practice what we had learned and discussed in the course. And all of this led to a very real change for the better in the lives of our children."

Making anxiety reduction and improved wellness for kids more accessible

CBT For The Family - Classroom Edition

We understand that managing a classroom is hard, especially when a class includes kids struggling to manage their anxiety. So we created a version of the course for classroom settings.

Educators can purchase the full course curriculum, including permission to print personal activity workbooks for each child in the class, as well as receiving a specially designed teacher's handbook to guide use of the course in a classroom setting. This version of the course is designed to support common language and enhance coping and wellness in the classroom. Students are encouraged to take the workbook home and bridge their learning into their family environments.

Schools Support Wellness, One Family At A Time

Schools have the power to be a game-changer for families struggling with anxious kids. As observers of children's behaviours and challenges, educators are often in a key position to spot anxious reactions and to offer early intervention resources to families. We want to support schools in supporting the families you work so hard to serve.

We have created an option for schools to purchase bulk access to the CBT For The Family: Tools For Life course, at a discounted rate, to provide direct access to families in your school body who have a child/children identified as struggling with anxiety or high stress.
