My name is Doug Wentworth and I have been working as a mental health counselor in public education since 1995. Prior to my work in schools, I worked in day programs, out-patient settings and residential facilities.
I am excited to be on the team at RCS. My goal is to support the students, families, and faculty in making the educational experience exceptional. Children and teens have many challenges in today’s world and I feel it is my job to assist and support them in meeting these. I offer services through classes, small groups and individual sessions. Examples include classes for social skill development, small groups to tackle issues related to anxiety or peer conflict, and individual sessions for students who need a little more in the way of support and encouragement. There are also plans in the works for a peer mentoring program where students can offer support to each other in a variety of ways.
Please contact me at the school with any concerns or questions.
