Degrees and Certifications:
I am a Licensed School Social Worker and a Licensed Clinical Social Worker. Previously I worked as a therapist in psychiatric settings serving adolescents, children, and families. I am a member of the Community Advocacy Committee for the Southern Region and meets with leaders in the area addressing community concerns around mental health, education and substance use.
I serve as an advocate for families to ensure students and families have access to the most appropriate services that allow students to reach their full potential. I believe that students are best supported by supporting parents and families. I aim to provide a supportive network for parents that allow them to feel safe and secure in discussing all concerns and taking a solution-focused approach. I recognize that there are a lot of parenting styles and family dynamics that influence priorities/values and takes a strength-based/family-directed approach in interventions.
As your school Social Worker, I am here to support you and look forward to getting to know students and families!
