In this episode, I’m joined by Ann Smollon. Ann is a social worker who specializes in psychotherapy. For more than 25 years, she has had the privilege of treating people from all walks of life who have had a variety of needs: Individuals and couples who are struggling and are desirous of greater peace and harmony in their relationship, families seeking greater interpersonal harmony, using specialized conflict resolution treatment, along with children who may be having difficulty in school or who may be suffering from certain forms of learning challenges or bullying, or adolescents who may be experiencing emotional turmoil or lack of direction.
