Lisa McLish, JD, MSW, LICSW, Clinical Social Work/Therapist in Washington
As a parent myself, I know that as children grow up, families are in constant transition. Kids are changing all the time! Some phases of development are more challenging than others. If you are unsure how to navigate these developmental changes, I can help. I help families just like yours to make successful changes and adjustments during difficult times, for a lasting positive impact on your family. I especially enjoy working directly with parents, to provide concrete and practical parenting strategies that you can use immediately! Call me today. I can help.
Are you planning a pregnancy or expecting? Are you worried about how your life will change once you're a family of three (or more)? Have you recently had a baby? I can help you to adjust to this transition, while you learn to thrive as new parents.
If you are looking to make changes in your life, call or email me today. My office is conveniently located just steps from the Tenleytown/AU metro station on the Red Line. I can help you and your family achieve your goals.
