Valerie Westfall, LMSW | School Based Therapist

    Personal Statement: As Alfred says to Bruce Wayne (AKA Batman) ” why do we fall, Bruce? So we can learn to pick ourselves up”. This quote is one of my favorites and I too believe that we all fall at times, and sometimes we need support from others to help pick ourselves up. I would like to be that additional support for children to let them know it is ok to ask for help and acknowledge that things can be difficult to deal with. With this additional support hopefully we cant teach kids that they too can rise like Batman.
