McMillan Education welcomes two new special needs counselors!

We are excited to welcome Rachel Leja, M.S. and Samantha McMillan New, OTR/L MOT, two amazing, highly experienced and compassionate special needs counselors to our team!

Over the past two years, we have seen a significant increase in families searching for a means to effectively address their children’s educational and developmental challenges. Helping students find the best fit environment that understands and transforms the trajectory of their learning differences, emotional and behavioral struggles is our passion and our expertise here in McMillan Education’s special needs practice. Rachel and Samantha will add both to our ability to meet this demand and to our depth and range of expertise in working with students with learning, developmental, emotional and behavioral challenges seeking school, college and crisis planning guidance.
