Upcoming Events


November Event - Psychological Wellness Begins at Home

Our children are more stressed and anxious than any time in modern history. How we parent and manage emotions at home can protect our children and bolster their emotional resilience, or it can hinder development and make things worse. This session will focus on parenting strategies that promote healthy psychological development.

Join Dr. Elizabeth Carter on Thursday, Nov. 16 from 6:30 - 8 p.m. in the BSM Library for the November Just for Parents speaker series. She will discuss how to help children manage the influences of technology, pressures of modern life, and common parenting mistakes will be discussed. Parents will leave with concrete strategies to help their children thrive. Light refreshments will be provided.

Elizabeth Carver is on the Phoenix School Counseling leadership team. She is a mental health clinician who specializes in children and adolescent mental health as well as parenting strategies and approaches when managing mental health challenges with children. She has experience working to address anxiety, depression, social struggles, eating disorders, and family transitions related to divorce and death.

She graduated from the University of Minnesota, Twin Cities and her Masters in Social Work from the University of Wisconsin, Madison and completed the LEAH fellowship in adolescent mental health with the Boston Children’s Hospital/Harvard Medical School.

In her free time Elizabeth loves playing with her children, practicing yoga, and playing pickle ball with absolutely anyone especially her husband.
