I am affected by mental illness in children in my professional and personal life. I am an LPC working for a school district. I work with children who are dealing with mental illness every day. I am the mother of twin boys who are both diagnosed with ADHD and anxiety. One of my sons is on the Autism spectrum. Every day brings new challenges and triumphs at home. My children have taught and prepared me in many ways to support other children and families.
