EVELYN WOTHERSPOON & ASSOCIATES
Evelyn Wotherspoon and Associates supports families who are raising young children in two households through specialized education, assessment, consultations, and interventions. Parenting infants, toddlers and young school-aged children is not easy under the best circumstances, and it can be even more challenging for parents who are separated or divorced. We offer a range of services to help parents protect the emotional well-being of and build secure relationships with their young children following a separation. Our programs and services are designed for parents who may be in conflict as well as those who are able to work collaboratively but who still need help understanding and responding to the young child’s needs when he or she is parented in two households.
