Dee Cummings, Clinical Supervisor,

Dee has her Bachelor's of Science in Psychology and is currently attending Graduate school, completing her Masters in Mental Health Counseling. Dee has designed and provided a unique parent instruction/coaching model that has proven successful in engaging parents that do not respond to traditional styles of group parenting classes.  Dee works closely with the parent(s) understanding the unique needs of the particular family and focusing on the strengths in an effort to enhance the existing strengths while working on the areas needing greater development.


Dee created a survey of the child’s experience of foster care, currently in use by the State of Illinois CASA program, Teen Gender Identity/Sexual Identity Issues and the Family Dynamic training, and self-published a book “Parenting and the Challenging Adolescent”.
