Linda Herschenfeld, LCSW - Guidance

                                                      Linda Herschenfeld, LCSW
                                                     Elementary School Counselor

     I have been fortunate to be the School Counselor at Farrington School for 21 years!  I received my Bachelor's and Master's Degrees at Syracuse University in Syracuse, New York.  Later, I received a C.A.S. (Course of Advanced Study) in Play Therapy at the University of Southern Maine in Gorham. 

     Early in my career, I worked as a family therapist, a therapist for children and adults at a mental health agency and a mediator for the State of Maine.  I was and continue to be very excited to be an elementary school counselor.  Children spend nearly 8 hours each day learning academics, social skills and ways of coping with the world.  As a school counselor, I am in a great position to help students along the way!

     In my free time, I love to read, explore new recipes, and to knit.  I live in the woods with my husband and my dog in a house we built by hand.  I enjoy the peace, quiet and beauty of home and I love the excitement, creativity and learning I experience at our school!
