Hi, my name is Stephen, and let me tell you a little bit about why Little Tree exists.  

 

Years ago, when I was in school studying to be a teacher, I noticed that after class, many of my students would loiter around the room much later than what was expected of them. Often, this was not due to them warranting extra help, or needing a place to be before their ride arrived, or even because they wanted the extra attention. Rather, some of those kids needed the extra attention. Although, I certainly thought differently at the time, I doubt I was particularly “cool”, but what I did know is that I was relatable, and I was safe. It wasn’t a hard decision. I finished my degree and decided this was the path I would walk. I was going to become a psychologist. 

 

I’ve learned a lot since those experiences, but the one thing that has not changed was that this is what all people need; to be heard, to feel understood, and to know what they think and feel matters.  Like Dumbledore said, just because it’s in our heads, or because we’re young, doesn’t mean our thoughts aren’t real, or worthy of attention.

While Little Tree and myself love working with all populations, it was founded originally on the idea that kids, teens, and young adults need a safe place to come as well. I felt like the name "Little Tree" fully embodied that belief.

HOW IT ALL STARTED
