Wendy Hunt, LCSW

 

     Wendy initially developed her knowledge and skills with children and families while working with families who adopted from Utah DCFS. Her work there, and her desire to see both parents and kids create a loving and happy family, motivated her to obtain specialized training in attachment, trauma, anxiety and depression. She learned the importance of supporting parents with compassion, knowledge and information that will help them and their children, while providing therapy that goes beyond traditional Play Therapy for kids. Adopted and Special Needs children do not respond to the usual therapy or parenting techniques, and parents are often frustrated and angry - and sometimes misunderstood and alienated by well-meaning family and friends who do not understand the challenges these kids bring to a family. Wendy's desire is to help the whole family heal and grow into a healthier and happier family and she is eager to begin that journey with you.

Lauren Tarbet, CSW

 

     Lauren delights in working with children and teens with everything from early childhood trauma to ADHD. She has training and experience with the special group of kids who have Autism, ADHD, Attachment difficulties, Depression, Anxiety, and Trauma. Lauren has the ability to provide a nurturing and accepting environment, maintain healthy structure and limits, and gently guide them in developing healthy coping skills, social skills, and trust and connection with their parents. These kids can be especially challenging because they don't respond to "normal" parenting and require excessive repetition to learn healthy and appropriate behaviors - which is why she has pursued specialized training and coupled it with patience and compassion - for the whole family. Lauren is available evenings, to meet parent and children's scheduling needs, and is excited to get started with you!
