I created LMFS to help the entire family. Whether you come to LMFS as a parent, teen or child we offer you a safe place to “figure it out”. I believe that through the connections you make in individual, family or group sessions you will develop clarity and direction that will help you and your family live a healthier life.
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.
