Do you have an anxious child?
You’d do anything to get them to stop waking you up at night and making problems at school or getting in their own way with their habits and stresses and you just want them to eat a good meal and settle the heck down and be a normal kid???
This Roadmap Is Designed For YOU!
Parents find us and our Roadmap when they’re discouraged and drained
and want more for their kids.
They can’t make plans because their child is so unpredictable.
They’re walking on eggshells.
They love their kids but are exhausted by them.
They're worried their kids aren't getting the right foods.
They wonder about medications but want to know their options.
This was not how they imagined things.
They may feel like they’re failing their kids.
If that sounds familiar, I want you to take a deep breath.
Things can get better.
I know that because you're here. And you’re asking all the right questions….
What’s going on?
Why is my child so stressed?
Why isn't my love enough?
Why isn't what I'm doing working?
What can I do to help them feel better?
The real problem is that your child
is full of hidden stress you can't see.
We Designed Our Roadmap For Parents Of Kids 4-18 Who Experience
- Obsessive thoughts and behaviors
- Learning Difficulties
- Attention Problems
- Other Emotional Struggles
- A custom plan
- Functional lab testing
- Parenting support
- Progress tracking
It's for parents who want unlock their child's inner calm and would rather keep them off medications if possible.
Here's What We Do
As parents follow our roadmap they help transition their kids from Meltdowns to Mindfulness in ways that are not addressed anywhere else.
They learn what's going on inside their child's body that's making it hard for them to cope and they follow our system to create a safe and positive environment around their kids, and the strongest, most robust environment inside their kids.
Here's How We Do It
Parents learn to apply the 5 Core Nourishment Needs that bring messages of safety and calm to their child's nervous system, while reducing the 5 Main Hidden Stressors that keep kids revved up, stressed out, and shut down.
The result is a more emotionally flexible, resilient child, and a happier, more connected family.
As You Follow Our Roadmap You'll Gain Deep Insight Into Your Child's Body So You Know Exactly How To Help Them Feel Calmer, More Focused, Happier, & Emotionally Resilient
Overheard In Our Coaching Calls
Working through our Roadmap is not like seeing your doctor or therapist
Unlike a medical approach that aims to diagnose and fix a specific symptom, we take a whole-body approach that supports the entire child.
Unlike most therapeutic approaches we understand behavior as a symptom of some deeper discomfort inside the body
Instead of labeling symptoms and playing whack-a-mole, we trust in the body’s innate wisdom to function well if it’s given what it needs and is not overloaded with stress.
Instead of labeling a collection of behaviors as a diagnosis, we help you understand your child’s unique biology and find the leverage points to help them feel better.
Instead of making you wait until your next visit or charging by the minute, we answer your questions in real-time through our coaching group and weekly calls.
Instead of feeling isolated and confused, you'll feel connected and confident.
Instead of focusing on "fixing your child", we consider your child in the context of their environment.
Key Concepts That Fuel Our Work
=> Kids do better when they feel better and they feel better when they do better
=> The body is intelligent. Behavior is a text message from the body to the outside world of some deeper discomfort
=> Relationship is a cornerstone to healthy child development
=> The Body and the Brain work together to influence how we feel and behave
=> A child's external and internal environments work together to support who they become
=> Kids co-regulate with those around them
=> When we understand our kids we can help them
"He used to be angry, sad, anxious, aggressive and grumpy"
"This is my 7 year old son. I knew that the changes we were making were making a difference when friends and family started commenting on how happy he was.
Sometimes it's hard to really see the changes when you're so immersed in the every day of it all, but then I see this and I see how happy and rested and joyful he is on a much more regular basis.
Diet changes, supplements, consistency....these have ultimately brought peace and joy to my son like we hadn't seen in years. It's hard - but it's so, so, so worth it.
Thank you Jess for your continued support and encouragement."

Jess Sherman, MEd, FDN-P, RHN
I'm a mother, a certified teacher, an international speaker, best-selling author, Functional Diagnostic Nutrition® Practitioner, and award-winning Registered Holistic Nutritionist™, board certified in Practical Holistic Nutrition.
I've found that raising kids can be delightful and exhausting and that while they’re complex they're predictable at the same time.
I wrote Raising Resilience and created The Resilience Roadmap to fill a critical and unmet need that I saw with parents - they desperately want to help their children feel and function better but feel overwhelmed by all the moving parts.
Inside our Roadmap program, I mastermind your Strategic Map and personalize your protocols (Accelerated tier only) and facilitate one group implementation call each month. I work closely with the rest of the team to hold the complexity for you. We’ll be your strategic partners and connect the dots for you, freeing up the energy you spend wishing and wondering so you can focus on creating a more calm and connected home.
