FamiliesFirst Network's 15th Annual Child Welfare Training Conference, Olive Baptist Church, Monday, 06. May 2019

Keynote speaker: Dr. Bree Conklin                
"Life throws curve ***** that often knock us down and leave us blindsided--however, painful and difficult experiences do not have to define the essence of you as a person; rather those experience can be a starting point to creating a more authentic, connected version of yourself. While I may never have all the answers, my passion is walking the distance with my clients to discover those answers.
My clinical practice has been focused on children, adolescents, and families. I find great satisfaction in seeing families discover their ability to reconnect, better communicate, and discover new ways to live in harmony again. I have specialized in the following areas: trauma, anxiety, depression, attachment related issues, the child-parent relationship, parenting, and anger management.
My approach is genuine, client-centered, holistic, encouraging, and creative. I strive to create a space in which judgment is withheld, emotional connection is created, and the message "you are not alone on your journey through life" is communicated no matter how big or small a struggle may be."
