My Story

Hi! My name is Haley, I have been working with children and their families for since the beginning of my undergrad experience. Children have always been a passion of mine, it amazes me how resilient they truly are. I am also fascinated by how much impact and power a family, support system, and community can have. That is why I love working with both, children and their families, to help everyone reach their highest potential! 

My Blue Bird Day

What I enjoy the most about Blue Bird is getting to work with children in various settings; in large groups, small groups, individually, outside, in a classroom, and even out in their community. It gives a therapist the opportunity to really understand a child in all environments and gives the child an opportunity to really show their strengths! 

My Blue Bird Day Goals

  1. Earn my LCSW
  2. Earn my CTC (clinical trauma competency)
