The Expat Kids Club wouldn’t be what it is without our amazing team. We are proud to work with a multicultural staff representing more than five different countries! Our therapists work within a multidisciplinary, collaborative care approach, providing expat families with access to comprehensive care and interventions that promote mental health and well-being. We sit down all together two times during the work-week to review the integrative approach we are taking in supporting our clients.
