As a psychologist I have the privilege of working with wonderful families. Many of these families could use more support and I like being a part of that solution. Being able to tell a struggling client there is a resource like Ivy House is so pleasing. In the last several years of my practice I've seen how even a few hours for a "time out" or break can really turn the tide for someone and instill hope. Also, as the mother of a 15 month old daughter, whom I adore, I've experienced first hand how challenging it can be to take care of a tiny human. We all need help sometimes. It takes a village.
