I assist students with exploring their personal thoughts, feelings, and behaviors as they relate to reaching their fullest potential in the academic setting. As a student advocate, I work with teachers, administrators, parents, and community members by assessing student abilities, providing the opportunity for parents to learn about their child’s development and academic progress, as well as assist students with reaching their goals and plans for life.
As a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in the Middle School, I provide individual and group counseling as needed. I promote student success using a strength based philosophy. I offer students, staff and parents communication strategies to facilitate positive relationships. I can provide a student or family suggestions regarding area resources based on their individual needs.
