As a highly skilled Residential Counselor I read your posting for a new Residential Counselor with interest. My experience aligns well with the qualifications you are seeking in particular my role as a Residential Counselor at Cedarpath School for Girls and I am certain I would make a valuable addition to your organisation.

With more than 9 years’ experience as a Residential Counselor I am adept in Individualised lesson plan development and implementation and behavioural assessment and modification. Moreover while my on-the-job experience has afforded me a well-rounded skill set including first-rate communication and critical thinking skills I excel at:

  • Crisis Intervention
  • Program Planning
  • Indirect Student Services
  • Career and Academic Development

In addition to my experience and personal qualities I have a solid educational foundation and a passion for social work. Please review my attached resume for additional details regarding my expertise and abilities. I will follow up to request an appointment to discuss how my experience and background meets your needs.

Thank you for your time and consideration.
