If you've got teenagers experiencing anxiety

"Roya's webinar really made me more aware of how some of the behaviors that I've seen out of my kids are anxiety related - and now I have the tools to help them!"


For little ones with big feelings

This is the Head That I Have

written and illustrated by Roya Dedeaux LMFT

"I bought this book for my daughter who is new to counseling. I love that it intentionally highlights and uses terminology like “my therapist” because that helped her connect and reduces any latent shame for all of us. The pictures are exquisite and the figurative language used is great for readers or all ages."

"This webinar was great. It opened my eyes to things I probably knew deep down but need that outside person to say it. She has so much insight and knowledge that helps you feel much more calm and trusting of your decisions."

The practical insights in this book will resonate with every parent who wants to create a closer-knit family and to cultivate more curiosity, creativity and courage not just in their children, but in their own lives as well."
