Emily was experiencing some anxiety and fear about going to school and even stopped attending in person. Once she was connected with Edith Contreras, School-Based Therapist, Emily started to open up about her experiences.
Together, they worked through her challenges, with Emily using the coping skills she had learned to start attending school in person again.
“Edith, my therapist, helped me a lot. It feels good talking with someone and having trust with them. I don’t have this big fear of going to school because I know how to control it now. When I get older, I want to go to a good university. I want to get into something medical and maybe be a therapist.”
