A Word From
Our Founder and Director
“I truly believe that a child’s development of social, emotional and behavioral well-being is central to their overall health and happiness. Mental health is not separate from physical health, and it demands more understanding and support than it currently gets. My team and I embrace this demand and strive to educate those who work with youth while empowering the youth themselves to be all they are meant to be”
A team of professionals with one strong unifying purpose:
To make meaningful connections!
What People are Saying
"As an administrator supporting special education teachers in a K-12 virtual/independent study context, I can say that it is always a pleasure to work with Lotus' clinicians. They are active participants in IEP meetings, they write meaningful goals for students' needs in emotional regulation and social development, and they provide compassionate, evidence-based therapeutic interventions across the continuum of educationally-related mental health services ("ERMHS"). I look forward to our continued work together!Lewis Bauer
"Marcia and her team of counselors have consistently provided our school with meaningful student supports. Even though we were only able to have them on campus for limited times, I was able to collaborate with them whenever necessary. They vested personally with both students and staff, and made a positive impact on our school’s culture.”Dean of Students
"This (MHFA) was a great training and I learned many new skills to use at work and in my personal life. Thank you Marcia!"Jeri Butler
"I've been working with Lotus professionals in a variety of school settings over the last five years and have observed creative problem-solving in meeting schools' unique needs. More importantly, every member of the Lotus team has been personable, collaborative and professional, providing much appreciated, evidence-based supports to students and staff.”School Psychologist
"Excellent information - I wish I could have had this training (safeTALK) much sooner. I feel much more confident in dealing with these crisis situations & I feel confident in recognizing the ‘invitations’."High School Teacher
