Counseling, Consultation, and Evaluation
85 Constitution Lane, Suite 3D, Danvers, Massachusetts
Welcome to Growing Voices. We serve children between 3 and 22 years old. Our goal is to help kids and teens feel successful, loved, and celebrated, whether they deal with anxiety and stress or are having difficulties navigating social relationships. Kids who come here are welcome to be themselves.
I am currently scheduling psychoeducational evaluations within 4 to 6 weeks for children and teens.
I am currently not taking new counseling clients at this time.
Meet Meredith Edelstein
Meredith Edelstein PhD, LEP, NCSP is a Nationally Certified School Psychologist and Licensed Educational Psychologist who has worked for over 10 years serving special needs populations in a variety of settings including public schools, therapeutic mentoring, and therapeutic after school programming. Meredith excels in her work targeting anxiety, depression, attention deficit challenges, and social difficulties. She approaches each counseling session with an open heart and a belief that all children deserve to be heard and appreciated for who they are.
Meredith's evaluation skills pull from high quality testing tools as well as capitalizing on a child's interests and unique traits. Meredith seeks to promote a child's strengths and resiliencies in addition to identifying what strategies are necessary to help the child learn.
Meredith’s counseling approach is eclectic in nature, pulling from behavioral, cognitive, and artistic methodologies to best address the child’s individual needs so they can succeed in school, relationships, and in everyday life. She is trained in both DIR/Floortime and the Collaborative Problem Solving Approach.
Meredith completed undergraduate work in psychology and education at Goucher College and continued on to receive her Masters of Arts in Education and Educational Specialist's Degree from Tufts University. She received her Doctorate from Lesley University, completing her doctoral work in counseling and psychology with an emphasis on leadership and social justice. Meredith's research specifically focused on child perceptions of disability identification. Meredith is passionate about helping children develop their ability to self-advocate and understand their own strengths and areas for continued growth. She works to represent the child’s voice while also listening to and representing the perspectives of the child’s family, teachers, and other supporters.
Meredith has extensive experience working with the early childhood population (ages 3 through 10) and is passionate about using these years to set a solid foundation for success. She is also experienced in working with mid childhood, pre-adolescent, and adolescent populations.
In addition to her private practice, Meredith is a full-time lecturer at Tufts University in the graduate school psychology program.
