Mr. Gregory Ward, MA, LCMHC, NCC, NCBT

I have worked in the mental health field since 1995, and have served Valle Crucis School in the role of School Counselor since 2003.

As a School counselor, I work with students in a whole class setting to address SEL (Social Emotionsal Learning) needs such as character education, prevention based curriculum, appropriate emotional expression and coping skills, etc.  I work with small groups of students for more targeted issues and one on one for issues unique to a specific student.  Please let me know how I can help support your student or family with intervention, resources or referrals.
