Living Room Learning Series
A series of family-focused online mental wellness programs designed to be practical, easily applicable, and accessible right from your couch. Grounded in the latest child development research and created by experienced child and family therapist and mom-in-the-trenches, Karen Peters.
Our suite of programs are tailor-made to support families and those transitioning into family life to set themselves up with essential skills for wellness. Our programs are carefully crafted to focus on the information you need most and are delivered in an online format that is easily accessible and totally engaging.
Our goal in providing these programs is to make wellness ACCESSIBLE. As a clinician, I often hear the difficulty of navigating waitlists, financial constraints, time constraints and so many more barriers to getting support. In creating these programs I have focused on pulling together the information most needed for many of the families I serve, and have packaged it to be accessible whenever you have time in a format that is engaging and invites transformation for the entire family.

Is your family
Our programs are designed for families who are struggling in the trenches of family life. Whether your family is navigating difficult tantrums, a child working to manage anxiety, or struggling to maintain while waiting for support resources for children with special needs... our programs and resources are created with you and your families wellness in mind. We also work to offer resources for prevention.
The busy-ness of family life can make it challenging to read the books, attend the workshops and acquire what you need. Our programs are designed to be a connecting space for families, to engage and learn together. To support each other's learning and fit within the time you have. We provide our programs in our easy-to-access online platform to allow you to engage on your terms.
