Welcome! If you’re a journalist, producer, radio host, freelance writer, blogger, podcaster, or anyone else who works in the media, this page is for you.

Dr. Crombie on The Brooklyn Cafe Show


I am a certified life coach and the best-selling author of Stop Worrying About your Anxious Child. I also have a Ph.D. in Industrial/Organizational Psychology and an MBA.

However, in addition to being someone with letters behind my name,  I am the mom of two teenagers both of whom have had their own struggles with anxiety. All of my work as a coach, speaker, writer, and facilitator is informed by my own experience as the parent of perfect children who have struggled with anxiety and stress.

Everything I do is driven by my desire to help young people manage and thrive in the high-pressure, stressful world in which we live.

My work has been featured in The Invisible Illness, P.S. I Love You, Be Unique, and Candour.  You can find me on FaceBook, Instagram, LinkedIn, Twitter, and YouTube.
