CCPS Adds School-Based Therapist Through Partnership with RACSB

Rappahannock Area Community Service Board is happy to announce its partnership with Caroline County Schools to provide school-based therapy for students. The goal of this service is to promote mental wellness, enhance personal safety, and reduce student absences. 

Therapy will be provided free of charge during the school day face to face or virtually using HIPPA compliant Zoom. Ms. Kristyn Hunter, a 2014 graduate of Longwood University with a BS in Social Work and a minor in Sociology, will be the School-Based Therapist.  Kristyn is a Caroline HS graduate who just completed her master’s degree in Social Work, concentrating on Families and Children and School Social Work at the  University of Southern California, VAC. She officially began her career by working at a pediatric obesity clinic in Midlothian, VA in the Behavior Health Department. There, Kristyn provided individual, group and parent counseling services to the participants, educating the children and families on strategies related to healthy coping skills and eating disorders. Kristyn continued to work with children and families with Dominion Day Youth Services as an Intensive in-home counselor and Therapeutic Day Treatment Counselor in her own community of Caroline County. We are excited to have Ms. Hunter as a RACSB School Based Therapist being that the ratio of mental health providers to students in Caroline is 3,070 to 1.  Kristyn Hunter is motivated and inspired to continue to care for her community with competency and passion in her new position.  For more information, check out the links below:
