Crisis Intervention


Crisis intervention


All families struggle with communication from time to time. UAY provides crisis intervention and mediation counseling to help you navigate difficult situations and create solutions that meet everyone’s needs.


Talia Meidlinger has her Masters in social work from the University of Iowa. She has been working with youth in the Iowa City community since 2008. She began her career working with youth who had an incarcerated parent and in 2012 began working at UAY as a staff member in the Transitional Living Program. Last year, she began doing counseling at UAY and is now also working as a crisis intervention and mediation counselor. She enjoys people and their varying personalities and is fulfilled by helping. These things are why she chose social work as a career and why she loves her job.
