“When I talk to her I feel so much better!“
“I like the way she helps me with advice about my problems“
“When students feel troubled, I know Miss Abby will be there to listen. As a teacher, I can count on her advice when I am puzzled by a recurring student behavior.”
“She is so pleasant!”
“She listens so well and is very caring.“
This is how Trinity students and teachers reflected upon our new School Counselor, Miss Abby. Dr. Brockberg added, “From the first day of teacher workshops prior to the opening of school this year, I knew Trinity students would continue to benefit from Lutheran Counseling Services. That first impression of Abby Wirick is lasting, and I am pleased with the positive rapport she keeps building with our students and faculty.” While she has already been working with individuals and groups of students since August, we are pleased to formally introduce Abby Wirick to all of Trinity in this post!
Holding a Master of Science degree in Mental Health Counseling (BA-UCF, MA-Capella University), Abby Wirick is a National Certified Counselor (NCC). She is fully trained in trauma-focused interventions, as well as crisis-informed care aimed at addressing cognitive, emotional, and behavioral disorders. As a Registered Mental Health Counselor Intern (IMH #13924) with the state of Florida, she is nearing completion of full licensure which requires 1500 direct clinical hours beyond her Master’s Degree. Her Florida Qualified Clinical Internship Supervisor is Rev. Dr. Richard (Rick) Armstrong, the director of Lutheran Counseling Services of Florida.
From the comments above, and from her comprehensive resume of qualifications, our Trinity community, from children to adults, is blessed with Miss Abby’s counsel and care, through the services of LCS-Florida.
