Hello! My name is Kayla Hamel. I am an LCSW and have been doing public school counseling through Spurwink since 2018. I have been working with elementary school aged children (5-11) and their family’s during this time. I am in the middle of a transition period, beginning a combination of outpatient work and more public school counseling but with teens! I was drawn to mindfulness when I discovered its benefits personally. I have incorporated mindfulness in so many ways since into my practice with children and families. I am very hopeful and excited to develop more knowledge and skills as I continue in the social work field!
