The Face Behind AT Parenting Survival for All Ages

 

 

My name is Natasha Daniels and I am an anxiety and OCD therapist and mother to three vibrant, challenging and insightful children who keep me on my toes! I have spent the last sixteen years working with children and families in my private practice Hill Child Counseling. I closed my practice in 2021 after the sudden death of my husband. I now commit all my time and energy to my children and providing online resources for parents raising kids with anxiety or OCD.

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 online work to helping kids with anxiety/OCD and their families. 


I am the author of Anxiety Sucks! A Teen Survival Guide, How to Parent Your Anxious Toddler, Social Skills Activities for Kids and It’s Brave to Be Kind.

I am the creator of AT Parenting Survival and AT Parenting Survival Online School. 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.
