Today, we welcome Dr. Nicole Beurkens, the only doctoral licensed clinical psychologist with advanced degrees in psychology, education and nutrition. Dr. Beurkens is the world’s leading holistic child psychologist. She has dedicated her 22 plus year career to providing parents with simple, effective, and research-based strategies that get to the root of children’s attention, anxiety, mood, and behavior challenges, so they can reach their highest potential. 

We talk about why yelling at your kids is counterproductive when they aren’t doing what they’re supposed to do, what parents need to focus on to strengthen connection with their children, why what we feed them greatly impacts their physical, mental, and emotional developments, and how to not get our children addicted to mobile devices.
