Susan Griffin
I'm the Executive Director of Hannah's House Family Center, a nonprofit organization which provide a network of family programs that protect at risk children and support vulnerable parents experiencing the traumas of family breakup, divorce, and loss. We have expertise in supervised visitation and safe exchange; multiple therapies -- adult, child, family, parent-child interactive, couples; multiple classes -- peaceful co-parenting, positive parenting, anger & emotion management, infant & toddler care, and teens & screens.

We have a Substance Use Disorder Assesssment (SUDA) Clinic which specializes in tailored assessments for various court situations. I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT94717) specializing in complex co-parenting challenges, with a particular emphasis on issues of abuse, addiction, domestic violence, and parent-child estrangement. For some families these situations occur in the midst of or following a separation/divorce; blended family transition when a new adult partner enters the family; or when children are caught in the middle of Family Court custody and visitation disputes. For other families these situations occur when a new child is welcomed to the family; when the needs of children change as they move from one stage of development to another; and when families face difficult decisions about dilemmas such as Screen Time Policies. 

I am the Senior Clinician in the Transitions Family Program at Hannah's House. I provide training and consultation to our therapist trainees and interns to ensure that the next generation of family therapists are competent to provide services to families involved in complex family transitions that occur at the intersection of the courts and mental health practice. 
I believe children need the love and support of both parents. I believe all parents can benefit from support, education and guidance to improve the quality of their relationships with their children and with their co-parents whether living together or separately.

Free services include: Dad's Support Group on Thursdays 530-7 pm and Mom's Support Group on Fridays 530-7 pm. There is a Children's Arts & Animals Group at the same time as each of the parent Support Groups. A free Co-parenting Workshop and Children's Petting Zoo occurs on the 3rd Saturday of each month 10 am - 12 pm.
