I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with 24 years of experience working with children and families in New Mexico.  I have specialized in School Social Work for 19 years and have been at PAPA since 2008.  As a School Social Worker, my focus is on helping students access resources and to develop and use self-regulation strategies and mindfulness to manage stress and anxiety, and cognitive-behavioral approaches to managing negative thoughts and difficult emotions when these become obstacles to meeting their academic goals.
