Child Welfare Department has a Master’s level therapist available for families

Elizabeth Geisler

Having a Master’s level therapist attached to a foster care program is very rare, but it is one of the most important resources we are able to offer our foster parents. FSCA is very fortunate to have someone with Elizabeth Geisler’s skill and expertise in our program. Liz is available to our foster parents to provide in home crisis intervention and to work with families to help manage children’s behaviors.

Liz believes in a collaborative approach to helping children learn coping skills. She states that “children in foster care need extra parental skill and support” and Liz is available to help our foster parents increase their parental skill level. Liz believes that the foster parent is the primary agent of change for a foster child.

Elizabeth Geisler is the clinical supervisor for FSCA and has been with the agency for ten years. She has an MSW from the University of Michigan and she specializes in treating anxiety disorders and Oppositional Defiance Disorder (ODD). Liz has worked in many settings over the last twenty years with both adults and children. She has been married for twenty-seven years and has two adult children in college. Liz likes to hike and listen to alternative rock or folk music.
