School Counselor

Welcome! My name is Candace Lord and I am the Underhill School Counselor. I am passionate about helping your child achieve his or her highest potential. I enjoy sparking students to think for themselves, explore their thoughts and feelings at the same time understanding how they affect others and the world around them.

At Underhill the counseling program is a comprehensive program as outlined by the American School Counselor Association (ASCA). This includes classroom lessons, themed/target groups, and individual counseling. In addition at Underhill we strive to help all students on their academic journey. At times some children need additional support to meet their needs. Please feel free to call or email me to discuss your concerns.

As a New Hampshire Certified School Counselor and a member of the American School Counseling Association, my credentials include:

Masters in Education/Counseling at University of New Hampshire

Graduate certificate in Autism Spectrum Disorders from Antioch New England

Social Thinking Clinical Training Level 1 Assessment, from Social Thinking Clinic in San Jose, CA.
