Hello Viking Families,
First let me say, I’ am so glad to be here! The Willapa Valley community has given me a warm welcome.
A little about me, my name is Jessica Todd I’ am the new school counselor at Willapa Valley Schools. I recently moved here from Denver Colorado, where I received a Masters in Counseling and Human Services from the University of Colorado. I enjoy the hoodie weather at the beach, walking my three monster dogs, and cooking. I love being a school counselor, working with families and students to build a happier, healthier generation.
I use techniques based in research that are short term and solution focused. I believe that mental health is for everyone, and will work hard to reduce negative stigmas to help create a culture of safety.Whats unique about my position is that I'am affiliated with Willapa Behavioral Health, if you or your student needs further mental health services, please reach out for referral information.
A short list of things I can help with:
Building of positive coping skills
College and Career Planning
Referrals to Community Mental Health Services
The list goes on, but the bottom line is I’m here to support the Viking Students and Families!
Let’s have a great school year,Jessica Todd
