What She Said! with Christine Bentley & Kate Wheeler

Contest: Win a copy of Kristina Virro’s ‘The Anxious Teen’

Introducing the new book from Canadian author & holistic practitioner Kristina Virro.

With rates of anxiety hitting catastrophic numbers among today’s youth, the question begs to be asked: “why are teens so darn anxious in the first place and what can we do to help?” Relying on her firsthand experience giving hundreds of hours of therapy to teens, parents and families, author Kristina Virro takes a deeper look into this unsettling phenomenon to locate some of its root causes and possible solutions. Whether you’re a worried parent or frustrated teacher, this book provides practical tips and useful tools designed to reduce symptoms of anxiety in teens and increase caregivers’ abilities to cope, too.


As a psychotherapist and holistic nutritionist, I look at how the different parts of your life shape who you are, from your innermost beliefs about yourself to your eating and exercise habits. I prioritize being transparent, non-judgmental, and supportive, while also challenging some of the seemingly automatic beliefs and thoughts you may have that prevent you from meeting your goals. I also pride myself on being open-minded and anti-oppressive in my work. Models of therapy I am trained in and have been inspired by include: Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Solution Focused Therapy, Narrative Therapy, Emotionally Focused Therapy, and Trauma-Informed Care.
