I am a licensed counselor in the State of Michigan and a graduate of Spring Arbor University. Rise Above is a non-profit organization that offers educational support to students who have been permanently expelled from school. Think... an alternative school for alternative schools. As counselor at Rise Above, I coordinates with each student's school of record to ensure that the transition to and from Rise Above is as smooth as possible. I also offers counseling support to the students through weekly sessions and group facilitation.
