Welcome to Calm the Storm
Why Calm the Storm?
Is your child experiencing emotional breakdowns?
Does your child get emotionally frustrated easily, often leading to emotional outbursts?
Does everything seem fine - and then your child goes from 0 to 100 at a moment's notice?
Does your children become emotionally hysterical with big, dramatic explosions or outbursts?
Or maybe your child is experiencing anger or aggression
- even to the point you are concerned they will hurt themselves, a sibling, or even you?
Are you not sure how to handle it?
Do you try to stay calm, but end up feeling triggered?
Maybe you respond with yelling or your own high emotions that seem to make everything worse?
Do you know in your heart you need new tools to both help you stay calm and to support your child?
You're not alone!
In working with over 500 families in the last 7 years - and as a parent myself - I've discovered that:
the #1 parenting struggle most parents face today is what to do when our children have an emotional breakdown, meltdown, or tantrum.
Even with the best of intentions, staying calm, neutral and supportive as a parent with a melting down child is challenging to say the least.
It's easy to get stuck in a cycle of responding to children's high emotions with our own high emotions, whether it's yelling, anger, withdrawing - and even our own emotional breakdown.
Because emotional breakdowns are the #1 challenge parents face today, that also means that supporting you and your children around high emotions is the #1 way to bring positive change to your family.
You can learn how to find your calm in the storm, and transform emotional breakdowns into emotional breakthroughs.
What is Calm the Storm?
Learn how to replace parental reactivity and overwhelm with personal empowerment, clarity, and ease of supporting your children's high emotions.
Whether you're dealing with your children's occasional emotional frustrations or regular emotional meltdowns, Calm the Storm provides the tools and foundation for you to decrease the intensity and frequency of emotional breakdowns and build a well of emotional resiliency from the inside out.

What I appreciated most from this program is the practical information and knowledge Megan taught me about emotions. She provided individual and group support sessions with opportunities for open discussions on an easy to use platform. The group participating in Calm the Storm had opportunities to share their own struggles and experiences in their everyday work with children. This class helped me to better understand myself when faced with emotional situations by empowering me to practice methods for regathering and re-connection to better find balance in my life. By using simple tools and coping strategies Megan gives a clearer idea how to model for children ways to express myself so they too can learn healthy calming skills. Calm the Storm has opened my eyes to the power of emotions and how they can have an effect on the people around me. Recognizing my own stress responses, temperament and triggers has also helped me to understand how children and adults react differently. My biggest take away is to have compassion for myself and to address my own struggles using calming tools so I can be a better parent and teacher. ~Jeannie, mom of two
I began working with Megan initially to learn to better support my 3 year old granddaughter, who is experiencing effects from trauma and grief after her mom's struggles with addiction led to us seek legal custody. My granddaughter was having a lot of strong emotions, understandably, and I learned that she needed to develop stronger attachments since she did not develop a healthy sense of attachment to her mom when she was an infant. Megan gently, and with such understanding, helped me (with tools that) ... worked, and she moved quickly through a lot of areas of recovery! She and I are very strongly connected and she is much less reactive and anxious than she was. It is amazing to see the transformation in her and it feels great to know how to respond to her when she is struggling....The tools I have learned while working with Megan have not only been of benefit to my own family, they will help me in my work as a preschool teacher. I am so grateful to Megan and Calm the Storm. I highly recommend her for helping to strengthen the relationships in your life!
