Story Behind

The customer, Brooke Farrell, is a therapist of individuals, groups & families with more than 14 years of experience. The customer is the Founder & Director of Unify Families company, based in North Carolina, focusing on the quality of the connection between parents and teens, relational impasses, and behavioral issues.

Throughout the last 10 years, she has created a program of services devoted to supporting teens and their parents in transitioning from a therapeutic program to home, or a post-treatment setting.

Unify Families aims at creating successful transitions for teens and families by coaching them toward healthier connections. To enhance the process, the customer needed an app that would be an effective communication tool for them and be at hand any time when needed.

Often, when people are in conflict with their loved ones, they do not talk about their feelings very well, which can cause further conflict and problems. When people are upset the tendency is to make “You” statements. They concentrate on negative statements, start to blame, which leads to conflict escalation.

Connect app helps to reverse this trend and build a base for understanding by training to use “I feel” statements, express emotions correctly, and listen to others.

To use “I feel” statements effectively, practice is required and the Connect application is designed to give this practice. Users have the opportunity to choose an emotion to understand how they feel and share it with their loved ones.
