Kenia Gonzales

Your New Behavioral Consultation Model (BCM) Clinician/Consultant

I would like to take this opportunity to say hello and introduce myself, and briefly review my role here at La Loma Jr. High School.

My name is Kenia Gonzalez, your BCM Clinician/Consultant for the 2022- 2023 school year. I am very excited to join the La Loma Jr. High team.

What is a Behavioral Consultation Model Consultant?

The Behavioral Consultant is part of the Behavioral Consultation Model Program. I am a Registered Associate Clinical Social Worker providing behavioral and clinical mental health services specific to the needs of the school. Services primarily include: student de-escalation and crisis intervention, parent trainings, staff collaboration, teacher consultation, student observations and needs assessments and direct counseling services to students. My primary purpose of the consult position is to assist in providing Tier 2 and 3 level emotional support services to students on campus.

How does Behavioral Consultation Model program differ from the Student Assistance Program?

Hopefully you  have been made aware of  the services  provided by the Student Assistant Specialist (SAS) which include: individual or group support services  to students,  classroom presentations, and referrals to community  resources.  The Behavioral Health Consultant can additionally provide  clinical  level consultation to  staff, provide  parent  training and  individual and group mental health services.   

Direct services provided by the BCM focus on behavioral or mental health concerns of students whose level of need exceeds short term services or who may need clinical level interventions.  Collaborative  efforts with parents  and staff are  used to  reinforce existing supports.  If you are interested  in a consultation regarding  a certain student, please let me know. 

Referrals for both programs will be screened by site administrators or school counselors to determine the most appropriate services for the student.
