Looking for new perspectives from other high school counselors? Look no further than this conversation with Chris, a public charter high school counselor from California!


In this episode, we talk about Chris’ background and specialty in mental health. She emphasizes how it has aided her as she’s transitioned into a role of a school counselor in her current virtual school setting. 


We talk about what is working in her school right now and how she hopes to grow those things. Chris shares a student success story and how she’s grown this year as a public charter high school counselor. Lastly, Chris shares her wins from her past eight months in the Clique Collaborative and how this high school membership has made an impact on her practice as a high school counselor.


Chris Z. made her way to school counseling via social work with backgrounds in foster care and mental health settings. She works at a public charter school in Northern California that serves students learning from the home through independent study. (They don’t have a physical school campus!) Outside of work, Chris loves gardening, cooking what she grows, and camping and hiking with her husband and dog. She has two adult daughters working in STEM fields.


You’ll love hearing about Chris’ background and how it has made her the school counselor she is today!
