Meet Lake County Virtual's Mental Health Liaison

Hi! My name is Ms. Grill, I am a National Certified Mental Health Counselor. I am also certified as a Clinical Certified Trauma Professional.

I graduated in 2007 with my Bachelor's in Psychology. Then in 2012 with my Masters Degree in Psychology specializing in Community Counseling from Edinboro University of Pennsylvania. I also have earned several post master's credits toward a Ph.D. in Industrial and Organizational Psychology

I moved to Florida in 2013 from Pennsylvania for warmer weather and to be with family who already lived in Eustis Florida.

I enjoy spending time with and sharing my many pets. I am currently working on my Animal-Assisted Intervention certification, so everyone who wants to can benefit from the therapeutic and healing effects of the kindness and compassion an animal can give.

I have a passion for helping individuals in need and have dedicated my career to public service. I believe mental wellness is an important aspect to reaching your goals and I want my students and families to know "I CARE."

Please feel free to contact me!
