Origin Story

Theresa is a mental health professional who has worked with hundreds of children in a one-on-one, private practice setting. 

One day, she was working with a child and she began to draw an ice cream cone. She drew the connection between feelings and how they can be explained using fun examples. The child became instantly engaged and began using the process at home. The parents saw great changes in the child's behavior at home and that's when Theresa realized she could solve a terribly painful issue that impacts millions of kids every day.

Feelings are like big scoops of ice cream that get stacked on an ice cream cone. When we do not process these feelings our emotions melt together and can make a big mess! 

The Ice Cream Cone Feelings book is a fun and interactive story that teaches children and adults a unique process designed to minimize the emotional messes of daily life. 

Instead of making messes, the Ice Cream Cone Feelings book teaches readers how to recognize their feelings so that they can interact with their emotions in healthy new ways.

A Story About Squirrel Books

After Theresa saw how kids, parents, and people in the therapy world were responding to her 1st book, she decided it was time to talk about the importance of listening to your gut.

The book THERE'S A SQUIRREL IN MY TUMMY teaches kids the difference of good vs. bad touch, listening to their gut (squirrel) and learning to trust HOW people make them FEEL.

It was designed to empower children to recognize their gut feelings; protecting themselves from bullies, strangers, and those who intend to harm them.


Worrying About Your Children Stinks. Arm Them with the Tools to Defend Themselves.


Children will face many adversities in life. There’s A Squirrel in My Tummy places more tools in children’s tool boxes to handle adversities.

I have counseled many children and adults, who have experienced the “gut feeling” that something was wrong, dangerous or made them uneasy and did not know what to do.

This is a story of how Luke and Bella learn how to trust their gut feelings.

It is vital that adults teach children about their feelings and how to communicate when they have “that squirrelly feeling.”

After seeing how my own kids tried to relate to multiple military deployments and deal with pent up feelings, I wish we'd had access to a book like this one. Our kids need to learn how to deal with all of those feelings in ways that make sense!

For military parents out there, I hope you agree with me that the Airman/Soldier/Sailor/Marine and Family Readiness Centers could use a tool like this to help kids process and deal with the pressures of being a military kid in an age of relentless deployments.

This is a wonderful book to help kids express and understand their feelings! My kids love it!
