Tammy Schamuhn, our Co-Founder & psychologist, will be speaking about anxiety at our upcoming conference in Edmonton (our hometown!).

Whether it’s generalized anxiety, OCD, somatic complaints (i.e., headaches, stomach aches), avoidance, racing thoughts, or perfectionism– this course is for you! Taught to sold out audiences in every corner of the globe, this course is here to empower and inspire you.

Tammy  approaches her clinical and educational work with parents and professionals with an attachment and neurobiological lens: all of her work is based on the neurology of the brain and how attachment is integral to adaptive functioning of both children and adults. As a child who endured much trauma in her past she speaks about her personal experiences with family substance abuse, domestic violence, emotional abuse, and how the power of connection is integral to healing and overcoming adversity.

Tammy is passionate, empathic, and down to earth. Her no non-sense approach, woven with humoUr and personal narratives makes her relatable and her information about mental health, interpersonal neurobiology, trauma, and attachment easy to digest for the audience.
