“Dr. Ingrid Wagner would like to thank all of the parents, young people and colleagues she has had the privilege of working with over the course of the last forty years. The time has now come to enter into the retirement phase of life and as a consequence, she will not be accepting any new clients for family work. However, Dr. Wagner will continue to offer training in Attachment Based Family Therapy and clinical supervision.”
