My name is Abby, and I am extremely grateful for the opportunity to work with so many beautiful and unique families on a regular basis!
I obtained my bachelor's degree in Psychology from the University of Wisconsin - La Crosse in 2019, and I am currently working to earn a master's degree in Social Work at the University of Wisconsin - Madison. I am extremely passionate about mental health advocacy, and I believe this is evident in my approach to working with children and families.
I have professional experience working in an adolescent group home, conducting in-home individual skills development with children who have high behavioral needs, supervised visitations, case management, and parent education; my goal every day is to find ways I can use my privileges to be of service to those who need support. I aim to empower parents to do their best by continually making the next "right" decision and by reminding them there is no such thing as perfection. I firmly believe in the goodness of all humans - we are all worthy and deserving of love and respect.
I am honored to be able to share my knowledge and evidenced-based teachings with parents, and I am always excited to see what I will learn from them in return.
