Elizabeth Word, BS, MS
Social Worker

The Social Workers Destini Ketchens and Stephanie A Powe support students & families at PCRHS by  Providing a safe and uplifting space for students to work through feelings of anxiety (worry), depression (sadness), anger, frustration, grief, hopelessness, and many others. We problem-solve, focus on their strengths, and explore healthy ways to cope with what they are experiencing. The Social Workers also make referrals to our school-based mental health partners (Hope Haven), and Social Workers connect students and families with our school pantry and/or other community resources. Essentially, we work alongside students and parents to find ways to decrease the social, emotional, and situational barriers that may be impacting their ability to thrive at school or attend school each day. Parents are welcome to reach out to the Social Workers if they are concerned with their child’s social or emotional well-being and/or need assistance with finding community resources. We look forward to connecting with you!

Chelsea Ward, MsEd
College & Career Counselor

College and Career Counseling at Providence Cristo Rey provides each student with the opportunity to effectively plan and prepare for college. As the college and career counselor, I am extremely dedicated to providing personalized guidance and comprehensive knowledge and support to all students throughout the college enrollment process or with their chosen career path. Ultimately, the goal is for every student to attend a college/university (or find a career) that is the best fit for their needs personally, academically and financially after graduation. College is a transformational journey, and I am very invested in each student’s ability to succeed and ultimately achieve their educational and professional goals.
