Circle of Security Parenting – A Great Success – Meet Our Facilitators

Circle of Security Parenting Program is an awesome resource for the seven families who are participating this spring. We give thanks for Merribeth Bizzell, our youth coordinator, is leading our team of child care folks who take care of the children of our families while their parents learn and grow in the upstairs Circle. Daniel and Sarah Smelser, son and daughter of Phillip and Cheryl are also part of this all-important team. Thanks Sarah and Daniel!

Susanne, whom many of you know, is a licensed clinical social worker who resides in Asheville. She brokered scholarships to the Circle of Security facilitator training for Donna and Jillian, local clinicians, who will carry the movement forward after being mentored by Susanne during this spring Circle. We give thanks for our Abbey partnership with these skillful “hands” of support for our families and children!
