As the school social worker at SMS, I work in all four houses alongside the house counselors, school psychologists, and other support staff to identify and support students' social-emotional needs. I provide individual and group counseling to students, and at times push into the classroom to discuss mental health and wellness needs. I serve as a liaison between families and the school to positively promote collaborative processes in educational planning for students. I also participate as a member of various school-based teams to develop interventions and programming for improving students' academic and social-emotional functioning. I can also provide information on community resources for students and families. I would be happy to speak to you regarding any concerns you may have about your child or for more information.
Please feel free to reach out to me via my contact information above.
