Specialized Support - Counselor
I am the full time school-counselor at CRES. I am starting my 17th year as our school counselor and the children know me as Ms. Linda. I began my career as a therapist both at Mind Springs Mental Health and as a private practitioner in the valley. I love getting to know all students at CRES and feel privileged to be a part of so many families lives. It is a gift that I cherish every single day.
My role at CRES is both prevention based and as a interventionist depending on the need. I help students develop prosocial and problem solving skills, support with family crises and emotion management. I regularly see children in small groups, individually as well as teach the Second Step Curriculum in every classroom. I encourage you to contact me if you and or your child needs support, ideas and or referrals to a mental health therapist.
I have 2 adult sons who attended the basalt schools k-12 and have lived in the valley since 1979. My son Dodge lives and works in Carbondale and my son Christopher lives with his wife and daughter in Perth Australia. I am learning to be a grammie from a distance.
I love riding my bike in the summer, travel, read, cook and being with friends and family. Stop by and say hi!
