“My work passion is providing mental health services in a school-based setting. I am a firm believer in and have seen first-hand through my 10 years of School-Linked Mental Health practice that providing co-located mental health services is both beneficial and needed. As a school-based therapist, I have the ability to collaborate with the school team. I can meet the mental health needs of the student within the safety and comfort of their school environment. I have a passion for school groups working with youth and young children on relationships and coping mechanisms. I believe in a strengths-based approach and work to build a strong rapport with my clients and their families. Overall, I have 15+ years working with children and families.”
