Do you have a child struggling with a mental, social, behavioral, or learning disability? 

 Are you tired of the daily constant battles and the emotional rollercoaster of having a special needs child? 

 Sick and tired of looking for help, to feel like you are going no where? 

 Frustrated with the isolation and feeling alone in your struggles? 

 Ready to take back your home and help your child? 

 Yearning for peaceful, uneventful days with a happy cooperative child? 


If you said YES to any of these, you don't want to miss my book. I was there too. I was fighting a lonely, uphill battle. NO ONE seem to be able to help us. I fell into my own deep depression, all the while my daughter continued to struggle everyday to function without a meltdown. I was tired of living in this craziness and I felt helpless.

{What were we going to do?}

I don't want you to feel alone. I don’t want you to spend hours and hours scouring the internet looking for some shred of hope that you might find someone similar who has any idea on what you should do.

You need real help, right now. A technique to try. A plan of attack. A new way of thinking. A change in your perspective. An understanding and insight on what’s going on with your child.

My family has spent years entrenched in this battle facing an unknown diagnosis with a child so young that help doesn't really exist for that age group. We’ve done a lot, learned a lot, changed a lot, and grown in ways I couldn't have ever imagined. I want to share everything we've learned, the hard way, with you.

This book is a tell all tale of our special needs parenting journey and how we overcame the battles to bring our home back to calm, while becoming an empowered parent to help our child. I share real hands on techniques that we used to understand what our daughter was struggling with. These are techniques that you can deploy today, right now, to start getting a hold on your situation. 

If you are ready to change your situation, and move from "Crazy to Calm & from Helpless to Empowered" I encourage you to purchase it at the links below.


Q: I have an aggressive autistic 15 year old, can this book help me? 

A:  YES! I believe it can. When we first started my daughter would attack us, hit, kick, throw objects, bite, spit, scream, and more. But now we rarely have that issue. In fact, I can name only 2 times in the last 12 months we've had any slight aggression. This book walks you through a ton of tips and techniques to help you understand your child on such a deep level and what you can do help them improve their emotional grounding, brain function, and modify poor behavior.


Q: What special Needs does the child in the book struggle with? 

A:  This book explores the struggles of ADHD, SPD (Sensory Processing Disorder), DMDD (Disruptive Mood Deregulation Disorder), GAD (Generalized Anxiety Disorder), Dysleixa, Dyscalculia, & Dysgraphia. It also talks about the author's personal struggle and recovery of depression. Tactics from this book can be applied to any child, at any age, with any type(s) of struggles. 


Q: Is this book for a child with anxiety? 

A: Absolutely!  This book discusses how anxiety can present it's self in many ways; such as tactile defense, anger, nightmares, sleep disturbances, low self-esteem, fear, and depression. It also discusses how to figure out the true source of the anxiety, and then implementing new strategies to help alleviate the anxiety. The book shares how my daughter went from having nightmares 4-5 times a week, to only 1 in the last 6 months. As well as, other amazing improvements.


Q: Is this book available in bookstores? 

A: I would love if one day it was available in bookstores. For now it is available on right here on my website.
