Here's exactly what 'The Big Heart Journey' can do for your family:


Kids come with a whole lot of feelings.


...and no guidebook about what to do with them!

So, we made one. 


The Big Heart Journey is specifically designed to be your kids Big Feelings guidebook. 'The Big Heart Journey' will fill your kids' backpack with practical tools to regulate big emotions, build resilience, practice empathy and find their own calm.  


Sign me up!

Welcome to your Big Heart Family!

A safe place for your children to land when they need a hug.


'You will always belong here. You will always be loved.'

Do you wish you could just read your child's mind?! 


⛈️  You're constantly asking your child to open up and tell you how they feel.

⛈️  You're frustrated with the amount of screaming & meltdowns in your house. 

⛈️  Your child reacts in big ways to seemingly small events.

⛈️  You struggle to get your children to sleep and stay asleep.

⛈️  Your child struggles to express big feelings in productive ways.

⛈️  You're concerned there are things your child is NOT telling you.

⛈️  Your child struggles with loneliness, self esteem & confidence.

⛈️  Your children are arguing a lot.

⛈️  You're concerned about your child's lack of social interaction.


It is my mission to make talking about feelings EASY! 


Show me the way!


If your kids learn how to talk about feelings NOW...we are setting them up for success later.


Feelings we don't talk about don't just disappear.

UNSHARED feelings come out in LOUD ways:

➔  meltdowns, outbursts

➔  screaming, hitting, defiance


or they come out SILENTLY:

➔  difficulty sleeping

➔  withdrawl & pushing away

➔  worry that spins out of control

➔  physical pain (stomach aches, headaches)


Someday your kids will be bigger teenage kids, and not talking about feelings comes out in much more destructive ways. 

So let's put those talking-about-feelings-strategies in place now!

Let's do it

Here's what Big Heart Kids can do:

Happily Move Through Big Emotions

I am are all about inspiring kids to emotionally regulate THEMSELVES.

Imagine looking over at your kid doing their Big Heart Breath instead of screaming?!


This is what's possible!

Dance Through Anxiety


Imagine your child knowing how to love, accept & transform anxiety!

This is important life business that will help them in huge ways. 


Yes, please hook me up!

Stand Confidently!


I am committed to inspiring your child's inner fire.

I want them to know WHO THEY ARE and LOVE WHO THEY ARE and do all things with an inner, unshakeable confidence.  

Watch out world, here they come!

Here's how your life can look: 

Hi, I'm Taes! (Tess!!)

(a.k.a  "Boots" from 2X Juno-Award winning Splash'N Boots)

 After spending 15 years creating television and stage content for children and families (aired on Treehouse TV, Disney Jr. Universal Kids, Sesame Street) I saw a need in our community for greater support through feelings.  I created The Big Heart Journey because I know the kind of impact this work can have on kids as they grow older. I am here to help support them so they can become empowered, confident adults.  

I just love talking to kids about their feelings....

For years, parents have asked me to help their kids with the feelings they are struggling with, whether their kid is being bullied, or they’re feeling frustrated, or sad … all the the big feelings. 

I've seen how hard it is for parents to watch their children struggle with their feelings, not knowing how to help.

I always wanted to know how I could do more. 

Meditation and mindfulness made such a HUGE difference in my own ability to move through feelings and manage stress and anxiety, I got excited about making a program to teach kids how it could change their lives if they learned it early.

I want all kids to feel empowered and excited about their lives. It breaks my heart to think about children feeling alone and having nobody to talk to. I want to be that person for them.

I want kids in 'The Big Heart Journey' to feel like no matter what, they're never alone.

I want them to always know that I am on their team, cheering them on. I just want to be like a little heart on their shoulder whispering:

"You can do it. You've got this. You are not alone."

Big Heart Families get:



The Big Heart Method for moving through feelings. Unique, outside-of-the-box mindfulness  based techniques to move your kids through all their big feelings and big life events.



All children belong here. This is a safe place. Families with a BIG HEART mindset connecting through special events, morning dance parties, bedtime stories, private community & a whole lotta love!



You are never alone!! 365 days a year of emotional support for your children (and you!).  Live coaching,  live events, audio and videos and hands-on activities all created to ensure your children feel both supported and empowered. 

More of those super loving, connected moments.

I believe the things that you will remember most in life are the smallest moments....the sound of your child's giggle, the feeling of their hand in yours, the sound of their voice when they tell you they love you.


I will help you learn the secrets inside your child's words left unsaid, no feelings left unshared. 


Less Loneliness, More Confidence & Communication:

Being a Big Heart Parents means you get support too!


Whether you're a parent who hasn't done any mindfulness work (and you are sure meditation is 'not your thing') or you are a regular meditating guru, I have something to add a spark and lessen stress in your life.   

Inside "The Big Heart Journey" I provide you with practical (not time consuming) ways to add tiny bits of mindfulness into your day that will make a big difference in your daily stress levels while reducing your overwhelm. These bits of mindfulness will also help you learn to be more present & connected with your children. 

I could use some support!

Reports from Big Heart Parents:

Here's how it works: 

 I am here for you, when you need it.

When the Big Feelings hit:

→ you have support & your kid has a friend.

Where our Members noticed a Difference:

Cheyenne feels confident and not alone anymore:

The Big Heart Journey has really changed my life and I think it will change yours too.  If you’re feeling down or really really stressed you can learn a lot with doing the Big Heart Journey. It's for anyone with all ages and all abilities. The Big Heart Journey made me feel really confident and that I am not alone. I especially liked all the breathing techniques. Whenever I feel upset I can always use these strategies and they will help me with these big emotions.”

- Cheyenne, 21 years old
(Autism is her superpower)

Addy learned how to talk about her feelings:

The Big Heart Journey has helped me because it has lots of different ways for many different types of people to talk about and express their feelings. Before the Big Heart Journey I was not the kind of person to do that and now I am really good at it and I have all of these special ways. Just knowing that there are other people out there who really get me, it just makes me forget about whatever bad happened in the week.”

- Addy, 8 Years Old

Meghan says it's LIFE CHANGING:

I love that my family could start and end our day together talking about our feelings and focusing on being present. For my 3 year old to be able to name his feelings and discuss “feeling soup” (more than one emotion at a time) is life changing! For my 8 year old she was able to use words and activities to share her feelings which really helped to reduce her anxiety.”

- Meghan Boast

Jenn loves more patience:

Since doing The Big Heart Journey there is more patience in our home. We are still doing count-it and heart breaths a month later and it’s just as successful.”
