I began working to cover for a staff member on maternity leave in 2010 and then began working full time in March 2011
I am the Fresh Start Children’s Services Coordinator and provide parenting groups and individual sessions, child and family therapy to women residing at an inpatient substance treatment facility who are pregnant or have at least 1 child under the age of one.
One experience I remember of knowing I made a difference is when I had a mother who initially could not even provide 1 strength for either one of her children ended up being able to consistently shower her children with love and could provide an abundance of strengths.
If I could do one thing to make kids’ lives better, I would want to create an environment for them where they felt special and loved without question.
One thing I wish people knew about CALM is how much we love our work with clients.
