I have worked with Henry County Schools for 2 months. My typical day involves working directly with educators, students and parents to ensure student success.
I provide BSF and DBT counseling skills to youth who are struggling with both emotional and physical (self-harm) challenges. I also assist the LCSW with facilitating group sessions to adolescents.
In my 11 years of counseling, I have provided guidance, life skills/coping strategies, small group counseling, home visits, and resources to families. I have learned the importance of being a great listener, patient, staying in the moment, and being honest with students and parents.
The most enjoyable part of my job is helping adolescents overcome barriers that impact their emotional, mental and physical wellbeing.
