Hello parents and families,
My name is Liz Hayman, and I am thrilled to introduce myself as the new school counselor here at MTS. I'm very much looking forward to getting to know all of you and to being part of, and a support to, this community.
I wanted to share a little bit about me and my hopes and goals for this position. I am a licensed marriage and family therapist and have been working as a therapist around the Bay Area for the last nine years. I have been in many settings including hospitals, schools, and health clinics and have worked with all ages from toddlers to end-of-life care in hospice settings. I am also certified in Parent Child Interaction Therapy, which is a model that helps coach parents on how to increase positive interactions with their children. I am very passionate about supporting families in what is undoubtedly the hardest job in the world, parenting. I also run my own private practice in San Francisco seeing children, adult individuals, families, and couples.
I hope to be a proactive presence and a resource for the MTS community. To that end, I look forward to scheduling grade-level based parent meetings and providing other communication throughout the year. I can be reached by email- firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone- 415-383-9434 extension 201, and I will be on campus all day Tuesdays, from 10-2 on Wednesdays, and 10:30-1:30 on Thursdays.
I look forward to meeting all of you and to a great year! Thank you!
