Marjorie Volpp, LCSW
I am a licensed clinical social worker and a mom of three teenagers. I received Masters degrees in Social Service and in Law and Social Policy from Bryn Mawr Graduate School of Social Work and Social Research. In addition to my graduate studies, I also completed a postgraduate training fellowship in individual psychotherapy with children from Boston Children’s Hospital. Over the years, I have worked in a variety of mental health settings helping children, teens and parents.
My most valuable education and experience, however, comes from being a mom. My children teach me things beyond what I could learn in a classroom. Being a mom has significantly changed the way I practice. As a mom I understand the dreams, hopes, frustration, vulnerability, and worry that parents feel. I see first hand the expectations, pressures and stress our children and teens experience. I established this practice to help parents, teens and children learn to better communicate with one another and to help strengthen families so they are truly a source of security, comfort and fun for all.
Amy Meyers, LSW
I am a licensed social worker and mom of two teenagers and one pre-teen. I received a Bachelor of Arts in Journalism and Mass Communication from the University of Oklahoma and a Master of Social Work in Advanced Clinical Practice from Columbia University. I have experience in working with family systems specifically around grief, loss and life cycle changes. I began my early career helping aging people and their families.
Now with many years of parenting three boys and an understanding about how past family systems influence patterns of behavior in parenting, I am excited take my experience in helping older adults and their families and expand it to include parenting in the sandwich generation all with an awareness of the great influence that our own experience as children brings into parenting.
I am a believer in the power of group work and the changes that are possible through sharing our problems, finding solutions together, and offering insight and support to one another. I can’t wait to meet you and help you figure things out!
