Clement Wilson, School Social Worker

Hi! I’m Clement (they/them) and this is my first year at MLC! My focus as a School Social Worker is first and foremost to cultivate and maintain trusting, safe, reliable, and consistent relationships between students, families, teachers, and the whole school community. I believe that people are the experts on their own lives, and my role as a social worker is to support students in uncovering and trusting their inherent and unique knowledge, strengths, gifts, and wisdom. I strive to walk alongside youth as they develop their identity, claim their gifts, and find belonging in their communities. My undergraduate degree is in Visual Art/Film and I have a Master of Social Work (MSW) degree from Portland State University. My professional background includes working with youth in outdoor behavior health programs, residential treatment settings, and public schools. I practice modalities such as narrative therapy, dialectical behavior therapy, expressive arts therapy, motivational interviewing, and trauma-informed care. I am also a gender diversity educator and workshop facilitator and I specialize in working with youth and adults across the LGBTQ+ spectrum. On a more personal note, I love my cat Monella, swimming in rivers and oceans, photography, long bike rides, soccer, and connecting with my loved ones. Don't hesitate to reach out if you need support or want to say hi during this difficult time of social distancing!
