Hi! I am Dr. Melanie, I work with kids and families who want to learn how to be the boss of their feelings, make and keep friends. I can't wait to get to meet you and to learn all about you. I have 7 year old twins and a therapy pup. I hope you get to meet him! His name is Doc.
When we meet, feel free to meet with me where you are comfortable. Some kids want to be in their room, others want to be in a common space.
I will keep most of what you tell me private. I will tell your parents or another safe grown up anything they need to know to keep you safe. I might also tell them things they can do to help.
When we meet, you can bring a snack, a stuffed animal and wear anything you want! You are also welcome to wiggle around as much as you want, color or play with a toy as long as we can keep on talking.
