evidence-based approach to tackling excessive worry & anxiety in kids and teens
we must tackle this!
Sadly, anxiety is the #1 mental health disorder in the United States but really great news.... retraining our brain is possible.
With understanding the right coping skills, we are able to change how we think, problem solve, & behave. We can change how our brain interprets information & better live emotionally healthy lives.
When we accommodate the worry, the worry only gets bigger. We must target HOW anxiety works to take an offensive approach to improve problem solving skills.
