I am a veteran school social worker having worked in urban education for 24-years. Currently, I provide services to academic at-risk students in a K-5 setting and have worked at the middle and high school level. As a clinician, I have worked with traumatized and adjudicated youth each population sharing similar disruptive school behaviors. I have worked with substance abusers, adult survivors both male and female of child sexual abuse, schizophrenics, and parents of abused children. As a college instructor providing human service, child development, and cross cultural studies for adult, I am experienced with the adult learning model creating an interactive academic community. I have an extensive background in community engagement and family services and bring this skill-set to my role as a school counselor improving the livelihoods of students, families, and communities.
