I officially became a CALM employee in June 2015. Before becoming an employee, I previously volunteered at CALM facilitating the domestic violence therapy groups for adults and children as well as a group for children of incarcerated parents.
I am a therapist in the Great Beginnings program which provides therapy and parenting support to children ages 0-5 and their parents.
I feel like I make a difference at CALM when I help children develop strategies to stay safe both emotionally and physically.
If I could do one thing to make kids’ lives better, I would let them know they are not alone in whatever challenge or struggle they may be experiencing.
I wish people knew that in the Great Beginnings program (0-5) there is an emphasis on prevention. A child or family does not have to experience a traumatic event in order to get support through our program.
