Students at #OurStoriesCRCSD Cleveland Elementary have access to a team of professionals that work to build relationships. This mental health team looks for ways to listen to students to learn what is missing in their education and proactively teach life-long skills. 

TeraCooling"The cool thing about Link is, we help the child find what they need to feel supported and connected in school and in the community. We watch for change talk without automatically jumping to fix it." We provide sessions using trauma informed care, psychological first aid, and motivational interviewing."

- Tera Cooling - Link Program Specialist




Jordan Bouzek - School Based Therapist


"I am now here full time, I can see more kids. I get to see 20 to 25 kids here on my case load for individual therapy. We get to pull them from class and provide the same services provided in our out patient clinic. I also get to be here and get to do preventative services. It means I get to work one on one with a couple of teachers working with their classrooms to make their rooms more trauma informed." 

- Jordan Bouzek - School Based Therapist




Andrea Playle - School Counselor


"Mental health in children is every increasing we know that nationwide and so being able to serve kids where they are at is amazing just in a sense that schools are one of the few places where we have all kids regardless of income or regardless of demographics where they live and we get the opportunities to education them and so if we can education and help them with their mental health that is just another part of the whole child development."
