MAREAS TEAM

At Mareas, teamwork is at the pinnacle of our service. We carefully select team members based on their expertise, passion and commitment to children and families. Together we bring all of our personal and professional experiences to the clinical team table, to develop a holistic individual plan for each client that comes to Mareas. We believe whole heartedly that drawing from personal life experiences coupled with knowledge and expertise from a variety of sources helps the children and families we work with find success, with programs tailored for their personal needs.
