Margaret M. Welch

mwelch@hansenandassociates.org

Margaret received her Master’s of Social Work from Rutgers University with a certificate in Violence Against Women and Children. Her Bachelors of Arts was completed at the University of Wyoming in Criminal Justice with a focus on juvenile law. At Hansen and Associates she specializes in trauma based therapy for all ages with an emphasis on love.

Her heart has always been to help teens,“We know they are our future and they need help to survive in an ever changing society.” Her work as a Family Care Coordinator utilizing High Fidelity Wraparound in Wyoming has helped her to reach the youth and their families in Cheyenne through advocating for children with special needs in the educational and court systems.

Margaret was raised on a cattle ranch in southeastern Oregon and believes that type of environment with its peacefulness and responsibility would be a perfect venue for at risk youth; a place of rehabilitation for our otherwise incarcerated juveniles. Collaboration between the Youth Ranch and Hansen and Associates would be a great next chapter to the story.
