Susan Weinstein, MA, LCSW

For more than 20 years, I’ve been working closely with children and families from all over the world. In 1992, I initially began as a volunteer teacher in Cape Town, South Africa where I worked with children and families. From there I acted as an advocate, trainer and manager for several international NGO’s and UN agencies focusing on women and children’s rights and protection throughout Africa and Europe.

In 1998 I graduated from  the University of Denver where I earned dual Masters’ degrees. A Masters of Social Work, specializing in children and families, and a Masters in International Relations.

After graduating, I started my career as a professional child protection caseworker for the Denver Department of Human Services. Followed by working for the Denver Public school system for approximately 9 years as a school social worker supporting and teaching parenting classes to teen mothers. In this same role, I also provided child protection, counseling to children, crisis intervention, parenting support to families, special education assessments and services, and  behavior management expertise to teachers.

Additionally, I worked as a milieu counselor in residential treatment centers and as a therapist in two Denver area pediatricians’ offices where I deepened my expertise working with children struggling with a range of behavioral, emotional, familial, and mental health issues.

I work with – and advocate for – children and families from diverse ethnic, racial, religious, cultural and economic backgrounds. My work has evolved from simply being my vocation– to my calling– and now is my passion.

I am dedicated to what I do. I help people solve problems and move from distress to healthy functioning. I welcome parents and children who want their struggles, their relationships, and their life’s difficulties to improve and heal. And ultimately find balance and peace in your family.
