The Adventures of Sister Sue and Buddy the Therapy Dog

By Sister Sue Andrew, ASC

For the last 14 years, I’ve worked at Visitation Catholic School in Kansas City, Missouri, as a licensed clinical social worker and child, family and school psychotherapist.

I’m also certified as a play therapist and head the crisis intervention team for the Diocese of Kansas City-St. Joseph.

It’s fascinating and fulfilling work, and puts me in the privileged position of helping kids deal with a variety of issues. Last year, Philip, a third-grader, came to me crying over his mother’s struggle with terminal cancer.
