The Face Behind AT Parenting Survival for All Ages

 


 

 

My name is Natasha Daniels and I am a Child Therapist and mother to three vibrant, challenging and insightful children who keep me on my toes! I have spent the last thirteen years working with children and families in my private practice Hill Child Counseling.

Kids are my passion – especially anxious kids and kids with OCD. Having been an anxious kid and now raising three anxious kids of my own, I get anxiety and OCD on a very personal level. I have dedicated my practice and my writing to helping kids with anxiety/OCD and their families. 

I am the author of Anxiety Sucks! A Teen Survival Guide and How to Parent Your Anxious Toddler. I am the creator of AnxiousToddlers.com and AT Parenting Survival Courses for Anxiety and OCD. My work has been featured on various sites including Huffington Post, Scary Mommy and The Mighty.


I am humbled to have millions of parents, therapists and educators visit my site each year. The more education we can spread about childhood mental health, the better all our children will do!


I am an active member of the International OCD Foundation (IOCDF) and have attended both the Behavior Therapy Training Institute’s (BTTI) general advanced OCD training and their pediatric advanced training taught by the top OCD researchers in the field.
