Sheri Brown-Ozio, M.Ed.,LPC
Everyone in life has their own unique story. Sometimes, we need assistance guiding us through those stories. I enjoy helping children, and teens learn coping skills to manage struggles in life. I have been in public education for twenty years. I have worked with the special needs population for the majority of that time. I started my education career as a life skills teacher, and later moved into a position as a special education co-teacher.
In 2004 my life, and my career changed course. I experienced a sudden profound tragedy with the loss of my only sibling. My family, and I experienced grief on a level I had never known. Watching my son, and nieces struggle with his loss gave me the motivation to return to school. I knew I needed more “tools in my toolbox”, to help my own family and others deal with grief. This loss set my life on a path of helping children cope with grief, and trauma. I wanted to make a difference, and turn his loss into something positive. His loss guided me to become a Certified School Counselor, and then a Licensed Professional Counselor.
The focus of most of my career has been working with students with behavioral issues, anxiety, depression, grief, and trauma. My experience has been working with age’s kindergarten through high school. With this background and knowledge I am able to provide guidance in certain aspects of public education (i.e., IEPs, ARDs, 504, etc.). I utilize an eclectic approach to therapy, which includes person centered, and solution-focused therapies.
