Carissa B. Gunderson
Children are amazing. They possess so many strengths that can be cultivated to facilitate growth in so many areas, social, emotional, academic. I want to see children grow into healthy adults with the skills they need to navigate and overcome life's stressors. By treating childhood mental illness with the help of families, schools, and therapists, I believe we can make a healthier, happier society.
