Casey's Clubs™ always have 2 facilitators and up to 10 club members for the cohesiveness of the group and maximum friendship building. One facilitator is a licensed mental health professional (or supervised by one) and the other is a certified or associate professional. Bainbridge has two amazing facilitators. Take a look below!
Marcee Ben-Menachem, M.Ed, NBCT, LMHCA: I have been developing and facilitating social skills groups since 1999. I had my own private practice in Bellevue (PALSS – Peers Actively Learning Social Skills). I have also facilitated Aspiring Youth groups through the Ryther Child Center and served as the Program Director for Choices social skills program for at-risk youth at the Learning Disabilities Association. In my 11 years as a school counselor, I developed and facilitated a variety of groups to support children in areas such as social skills, relational aggression, and grief support.
Shaeleen Kennedy, M.Ed, BCBA: I have a background in Speech Therapy, special education, and behavior analysis. I taught for 15 years and have done behavioral consulting for 7 years. I've done social skills groups in schools and in private practice. I've worked with kids with ADHD, Autism, Anxiety, ODD, trauma, adopted, from divorced families, and undiagnosed but presenting social skills deficits in school or home.
