Welcome to the mindfulness room! The mindfulness room is new to Perry this year, and was started to provide mental health support to students in a school setting. We have created a safe place where all students are welcome . It can be particulary helpful for those struggling with stress, anxiety and any other mental, social or emotional needs.
My Education and Professional Background
I have a Masters in Social Work degree (MSW) from Metropolitan State University of Denver and I have my school social work certification. Additionally, I am currently working towards becoming a Licensed Master Social Worker and recently received 32 hours of training in mindfulness through mindful schools. I have been in the social work field since 2011. I started out my career in child welfare. I then went on to graduate school where I entered the school social work profession working at a middle school in Colorado. In 2016, I relocated to Phoenix and went to work for an adoption agency where I case managed birth moms, implemented and ran the agencies volunteer program and helped with the start-up of an after-care program that aimed to provide additional support to birth moms.
My Educational Philosophy
Although I loved working in adoption, I soon realized I missed working with students and I particularly enjoy working with adolescent populations. Thus, I decided to get back in to the school. As a parent with children in the school district I am happy to see the push for mental health support in our schools. I am excited to be working in the mindfulness room, supporting the social, emotional and mental health needs of our students and helping to create a safe place for all students to come. I am passionate about mental health and preventative services to assist adolescents in navigating an important time in their lives.We want to empower students to seek help when needed, to feel supported, to give them the coping skills they need to be succesful both in and out of school, and to make sure they know that they MATTER!
