School Based Mental Health Therapist
I believe in meeting and joining with the student as an individual and whole person, using humor and connection to build trust and a
relationship on which to grow a therapeutic connection. It is my philosophy that the therapist is a guide to help the individual
understand themselves and to come to their own solutions and wants.
I worked with elementary through high school age students as a behavioral specialist in a day treatment program for over a year before
returning to school to become a clinical social worker. Throughout the following time I also worked as a camp counselor for individuals
with special needs. Prior to my work with children and teens I was a float staff for a mental health agency where I worked in a variety
of settings including residential, short term intensive mental health treatment, substance use treatment, and assisted living.
