The All About Anxiety Course
Taking Your Family From Surviving to Thriving
Until now, there has been no bridge between needing help and attending therapy. This course is the first of its kind - presented to you by a trauma therapist. We created this course so you can take control of the anxiety in your life, feel empowered to advocate for your family, and take steps towards the normalcy and peace you crave so very much.
In just hours, you will be able to identify the symptoms and causes of anxiety, differentiate between anxiety and panic, and understand what problematic anxiety looks like. You’ll also learn about anxiety-inducing stressors in the larger world and how the news and social media impact you and your child's anxiety.
The best part? You can stop listening to Aunt Karen and Uncle Chad who tell you "kids never acted that way in the old days - they just need discipline."
You will have your own toolbox filled with coping strategies for you and your family. Proven, effective, evidence-based strategies. #yougotthis
