Prisma’s guiding orientation is rooted in Seneca’s unconditional care model, which focuses on relational, behavioral, and ecological stream factors when conceptualizing client care and uses each as possible intervention points. My practices attempt to address needs in each of these strands.
Prisma believes that people’s beliefs about themselves and the world are shaped by their environments (both in terms of community and family experiences). Helping people to understand why they feel the way they feel or think the way they think can empower people to see themselves differently and make helpful changes in their lives.
Previous work experience was a Student Support Assistant through Seneca Family of Agencies and was a ABA Behavioral Therapist through Behavioral Healthworks.
Prisma earned her B.A. in Psychology. Currently she is earning her Master of Arts in Psychology and a PPS Credential as a School Psychologist.
During her developing professional career, she seeks to combine her experiences with her abilities to be Multiculturally competent and provide positive unconditional regard by advocating for families and students to overcome systemic barriers, build strength-based coping tools, and reach their full academic and social-emotional capacity.
