Mr. David Skowronski has not only worked as a psychotherapist providing therapy to all ages of clients for almost 2 decades, he has continued to work as a school counselor both in the private and public school setting. He worked at a private Jesuit High school, St. Joseph’s Preparatory School, and currently in the public schools at Mariana Bracetti Academy Charter School. His school counseling experiences have centered working with 5th-12th grades. He brings a wealth of knowledge and experience navigating many aspects of the school setting from special education services, 504 plan services, social/emotional issues of development, to college and career development both with students, parents and school staff.

What are student and parent educational services?

Mr. Skowronski understands that need for parents and students to address a whole child approach to education. It is defined by policies, practices, and relationships that ensure each child, in each school, in each community, is healthy, safe, engaged, supported, and challenged.

We do this by providing developmental childhood services, prevention services, and mental health services.
