Barbara Cross, Clinical Director, LMSW

Licensed Social Worker

Barbara Cross is our longest serving staff member. She graduated from Wayne State University and started working immediately at The Maple Clinic. Along with her clinical work, she is often called upon to testify in court, train agency personnel, or asked for guidance in community education classes and seminars. She has benefited from the encouragement of Mildred Herkner, our late former psychiatric consultant.

Professionally she helped broaden and define testimony in sexual abuse cases involving children when the Michigan Supreme Court upheld her testimony in People v Smith in 1995 regarding expert witness testimony.

Currently, Barb is taking appointments for a variety of dilemmas. These include, but are not limited to; marital problems, aging, depression, anxiety, adjustment disorders, sexual abuse, family and individual issues.
