Hello Flora Arca Mata Elementary students, parents and staff! I am a Marriage and Family Therapist and the Mental Health Clinician here at Flora Arca Mata Elementary. Good mental health is critical to children's success in school and life. School climate, classroom behavior, on-task learning, and students' sense of connectedness and well-being all improve as well. Mental health encompasses social, emotional, and behavioral health and the ability to cope with life's challenges. I provide mental health services on campus, including social and emotional support, school and family resources, and psychoeducation to students, parents and staff. To access services, please be in contact with the classroom teacher, school counselor or school psychologist.
Office Hours: Mon., Tues. & Fri. 8:00 - 3:30 pm
Christina Lopez, Mental Health Clinician
