New, Robust Family Programming at Trails Carolina Led By Leah Madamba, MS, NCC, LCMHC
A year ago, Trails Carolina Founder Graham Shannonhouse had the great insight to bring Leah Madamba, MS, NCC, LCMHC, onto the team as Family Services Director. Since that time Leah has brought leadership, innovative ideas and has been instrumental in enhancing family programming at Trails Carolina.
Leah built a strong team of family coaches to support Trails Carolina families along the journey to lasting change. She developed two new opportunities to assist a Trails Carolina family in their therapeutic work. The first is Middle Ground, which is a mid-program family visit that complements Common Ground, a post-graduation family experience. Leah also developed Family Intensives, a stand-alone experience for families to develop skills that will improve family functioning while giving a clear diagnostic picture of the family system.
“Leah and I worked together 13 years ago and I am excited about having the opportunity to collaborate again. I knew she would hit the ground running. The gains in family programming have been evident and exciting” said Graham Shannonhouse, Founder and Co-Executive Director of Trails Carolina.
“Leah’s professional experience gives her a unique perspective to support families in their therapeutic work. Families want to be involved in their child’s treatment from onset to transition, and we wanted to create more practice opportunities to test the work within the family system,” explained Co-Executive Director Jeremy Whitworth.
