“I have been actively involved with youth in various capacities for over 25 years,” Bullock-Neal said. “I started off as a class room teacher in special education. I taught 5 years in the public school system. I then went to school and received my doctorate in special education with support fields in clinical child psychology and family therapy.”

“What a lot of people don’t realize is that 60 percent of the youth that come through the Juvenile Court system are kids that have mental health issues, behavioral issues and other disabilities,” commented Bullock-Neal. “With my unique credentials I am the perfect person qualified to address the whole child and take the holistic approach recognizing child and adolescent development.”
