Creator of Anxious Toddlers

img_3214My name is Natasha Daniels and I am a Child Therapist and a mother to three vibrant, challenging and insightful children who keep me on my toes!

I have spent the last twelve years working with children and families in my private practice Hill Child Counseling.

Sometimes kids can feel like a different species and I hope to help unlock the mystery of how to keep your kids smiling, laughing and enjoying the moment one day at a time.

Kids are my passion – especially kids with anxiety and OCD. Anxiety and OCD are rampant in my family, so I get anxiety and OCD on a very personal level. I have dedicated my practice and my writing to help them and their families.

I spend half my week in my practice and the other half of my week soaking up the innocence of my children while enjoying the simpler things in life!

Because I have sooo much time on my hands, I have written two books. How to Parent Your Anxious Toddler and Anxiety Sucks! A Teen Survival Guide are available at all major book stores and on Amazon.

I love teaching and have  created Anxious Toddler parenting E-Courses. My course How to Teach Your Kids to Crush Anxiety helps parents learn skills to empower their anxious kids. 

I am a blogger for Huffington Post, PsychCentralScary Mommy and The Mighty. I can be found on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Pinterest or making parenting videos for and

    Hello! Visiting over from #weekendbloghop 🙂 Love your site – my anxious toddler has turned into a somewhat-less anxious 5 year old….thanks for providing this information to parents in desperate need.

      Hi Joy! Thanks for visiting 🙂 The nice thing about anxious toddlers is they tend to get less anxious as they get older. Especially if parents work with them to give them the skills they need. I am glad your little one is doing better!!
