Welcome to Mandeville Middle School! I am excited to be part of the MMS family full time this year. I graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Psychology from Louisiana State University. I then earned my Master of Social Work from The University of Texas at Austin. I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and have worked as a Mental Health Provider at MMS since 2016.
The Mental Health Provider (MHP) Program was developed in the 1994-1995 school year in St. Tammany Parish to meet the increasing need for mental health services. Over the years the program has grown to provide comprehensive services in all schools. The program strives for efficient service delivey through appropriate use of assessment, intervention, consultation, referral, and advocacy. MHP's use their clinical skills to assess and intervene with mental or behavioral health concerns that impede academic progress and social/emotional well-being.
I am looking forward to working with our amazing students and parents!
