January 16 at 1:00 pm – Bright and Quirky
We are delighted to have alum mom Debbie Steinberg Kuntz come share about her work with Twice Exceptional students. Debbie is a licensed marriage and family therapist and founder of Bright & Quirky.
From Debbie: When I started my family counseling practice a decade ago, I had no idea this would be my specialty. But my sons, now teenagers, had some unique strengths and challenges that I dove deeply into understanding.
I learned that they were ‘2e’ or ‘twice exceptional,’ meaning they are smart and also have unique brain wiring that makes accessing those smarts at times challenging. As I researched and found solutions for them, I started to share the learning with families in my private practice near Seattle.
Debbie is a fountain of information, and resources in the area and we are thrilled to have her.
Please RSVP to Brin in the office.
