GE Family Services is excited to welcome Melissa Skarbek to the team! Melissa is ready to work with individuals, couples, and families involved in the legal system. She provides therapeutic services to assist her clients to meet goals set by the court, probation officers, guardian at litems, Office of Children's Services, and other parties. She is comfortable in the courtroom and provides testimony if needed on these cases with appropriate release from her clients or by the order of the court.
