Mary Abbott, LCSW

Happy Summer! 

The weather is finally cooperating. It is nice to get outside and feel the sun. Hope many of you are going to enjoy some fun summer activiites and vacations. I plan on doing a lot of self-care this summer and catching up with loved ones. Friday the 8th I will be attending the NASW-Illinois Chapter Board of Directors quarterly meeting in downtown Chicago. I will include all updates in my July district update.
