Tania felt like her family was stuck. Her abusive partner had recently left the household, and her children were having night terrors and behavioral issues. Seven-year-old Corbin was suffering bouts of anxiety and frequent outbursts, while three-year-old Evan had regressed in toilet training. Tania was depressed. “I felt helpless; I couldn’t help my child. At one time he was talking and good on potty-training; then out of nowhere, he had accidents and I had to put him back in diapers.”
