EP197: Cultivating Emotional Intelligence with Katie Crosby


I used to do ANYTHING to get my son to stop crying. 

  • Funny faces. 
  • Bouncing. 
  • Singing.
  • Tap dancing. 

At times I felt like a one-woman circus. 

It wasn’t until I heard an interview with Katie Crosby, an occupational therapist specializing in emotional regulation, that I realized my role went beyond making him feel happy in the moment.

For long term emotional and physical health, I needed to help him understand, express and integrate his emotions in a healthy way. 

A skill many of us never learn today, but desperately need! 

Which is why I have been dying to share Katie’s 6 Step Process for Emotional Resilience!

This process has not only transformed the way I help my son manage his big feelings, but it has been key in helping me regulate my own emotions, too! 

(Step #2 has also helped my husband and I fight far more peacefully!:))

So tune in now and learn about Katie’s simple 6 steps! I sincerely hope it’s as helpful for your family as it has been for ours. 

And if it is, take a second to share this important information with anyone you know and love. <3


Katie is an occupational therapist working with kids and adults to support emotional regulation, implementing meaningful daily routines, and supporting the caregiver/child match all with the goal of living authentically.
