Jennifer Leach, Clinical Social worker, has more than 15 years of experience working with children and family in areas of emotional behavioral and social health. As part of our care team, Jen provides consultation to patients and families who may benefit from her help. She also consults with the providers and medical staff of MSP about the best ways to support children’s emotional and social development.
How to access a consultation:
Let your provider know if you have a concern about your child’s behavior, or their emotional or social health. You and your provider will talk about whether a consultation with Jen might be helpful. An initial consultation is typically available within 1-2 weeks.
What to Expect:
Initial appointments are typically 45 minutes and include parent/guardian, and child. If you want to consult with Jen prior to her meeting your child, please request a parent meeting first. Follow-up consultations are 30-45 min.
After meeting with you, Jen and your provider will decide together what services and support will be most helpful:
- developmental guidance
- short term solution focused therapy here at MSP
- referral to community based therapy
- participation in groups
- parenting support
- medication monitoring in collaboration with provider
- periodic check-ins for progress monitoring
- consultation with schools or other providers
