Hello. My name is Colleen and I am the mother of a 13-year-old girl suffering from severe anxiety and OCD. This is our journey as we do our best to enjoy the small moments each day, keeping the beast of anxiety from taking away the joy of life. In addition to being a mom and wife, I am an elementary teacher who loves the wide-eyed excitement experienced by a student when the "ah ha" moment strikes. My children's laughter, waves crashing on the beach, the smell of new school supplies, and fresh baked cookies are four things that bring instant happiness.
