Our Team

Our ever-expanding community is drawn together both by our commitment to care for children, adolescents and their families and by being integral to a pioneering approach that has promising efficacy.

Our team members provide direct practice using SMART to care for clients and act as stewards of the method. Like the SMART Spiral that illustrates how we activate the child’s innate capacity for healing and growth, we view SMART as a living method, growing and adapting to the needs of local interests, settings, cultures, and communities.
