Meet the Moms Behind
Big Little Feelings

Parent coach Kristin (right) wrangles two toddlers on a daily basis and Deena (left) is a child therapist, parent coach and new mom. Just like you, they’re obsessed with their little ones and want to do everything they can to raise strong, healthy and happy kids.
But REAL TALK: whether you’re a first-time parent, running a mini daycare in your living room or have a PhD in child psychology, parenting is hard and finding simple, trusted and practical advice for the everyday challenges isn’t any easier.

Deena and Kristin started Big Little feelings to give parents the resources they need to not just survive the toddler years, but to THRIVE.

Deena brings years of clinical experience as a licensed marriage and family therapist (LMFT) specializing in children ages 1-6 and Kristin, whose background is in international maternal childhood education, gets real as the mom who shows you how to make that expert advice work in your home, even at bedtime, perhaps with a glass of wine in tow. Together, their real-life experience as moms juggling work and family and their professional experience working with parents and kids, makes Big Little Feelings your go-to resource to successfully navigate all of the ups and downs toddlerhood brings.

Know exactly what to say when your toddler:


loses their mind at bedtime.


protests—loudly—when it’s time to leave the playground.



only eats four things—one of which is ketchup.


won’t give up their pacifier.


refuses to use the potty, even though you’ve promised a trip to Disney World, ice cream for breakfast, and a pony. 


does any of the other 4,382 things that currently leave you dumbfounded, discouraged, and/or desperate.

Happy parents with happy toddlers.


I wasn’t sure anything would work, I was completely exhausted and tried so many different things.  A week into trying the techniques the power struggles nearly whittled away. My kid was happier, I was happier. I can’t thank you guys enough.
