Parenting a Child with Anxiety Support Group

An online group for parents and caregivers of children with OCD, BFRBs, and other anxiety-related issues

“Will I ever not worry about my child’s anxiety?”

Parenting a child with OCD, BFRBs, and other anxiety related disorders can be very stressful. As a therapist, I often hear parents telling me they feel sad, overwhelmed, and worried about their child’s anxiety.

You are not alone in feeling sad, worried, or overwhelmed.

In this group, you will…

  • implement effective strategies for helping support your child with OCD, BFRBS, or other anxiety related disorders
  • gain support and connection from others who are experiencing similar difficulties
  • learn and practice healthy coping skills and positive parenting techniques
  • share common stressors of being a parent in a safe, supportive setting

This group uses Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), and mindfulness to help each group member learn positive parenting skills, manage stress, and feel connection with others.
