My name is LaWanda Epting. I am the Behavioral Health/Crisis Counselor for HMS. I graduated from the University of Louisiana at Monroe in Louisiana. I am a country girl at heart with a city girl mentality. I love riding horses and attending festivals. It is a priviledge to serve your students here at HMS. I am an advocate for students here at HMS. A personal philosphy of mine is "troubles, woes, problems, etc. have no age, it is all how the individual view them." My job is to listen without judgment and help them/the family come up with a solution. Providing services to students will allow them to live a happier more satisfying life. I have a deep understanding of how life challenges impact students and adults physical and emotional life. As a Behavioral Health/Crisis Counselor, I have learned various strategies to help deal with daily stressors. I work from a caring, heart centered approach(solution focused and CBT). I look forward to working with you and your student.
