Diana Wamsteeker BSW MSW RSW
Hello and welcome to the 2018/2019 school year. I provide guidance services for Holland Hall and Mullock Hall students and families and am at St Bon’s Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday.
My role is to work along with your child(ren) and family to create strategies and skills to develop and maintain healthy relationships with self and others. I also assist in facilitating healthy relationships to learning and act as a liaison between home and school.
I encourage you to look through these pages to find resources and supports for you and your child(ren).
Feel free to stop by my office in the main lobby of Holland Hall during office hours, send an email to email@example.com or give me a ring at (709) 726-0024 ext. 209.

My professional background is in providing child and adolescent mental health counselling. I have worked within educational, health, non-profit and private practice settings. I believe that children and youth experience the greatest success when parents, children/adolescents, and schools work together in a collaborative and supportive relationship with one another.
