Leandra CouasnonMy name is Leandra Torres Couasnon and I am Madison Christian School’s new Licensed Independent Social Worker. I will be working alongside MCS’s Intervention Team and their Clinical Counselor. My role will be to provide school-wide social, emotional, and behavioral support for our students as needed. In addition to this, my goal for this year is to bolster parent communication, coordinate with community resources to meet the needs of our students, and engage our students in the classroom by providing opportunities to learn about topics such as effective communication and emotional self-regulation.

I was born and raised in Brooklyn, New York and graduated with my Master’s degree in Social Work from New York University in 2009. I have worked in many different settings such as mental health clinics, hospitals, county support centers, hospice, and with the department of veteran’s affairs. 

I love hiking, backpacking, and all things outdoors. My husband is an Air Force Veteran and IT Specialist and we have two children attending MCS. We couldn’t be happier to be a part of this community!

I am especially excited to be here at MCS because I believe that we have a unique blessing and opportunity in the lives of our students. We are all here with a common goal to disciple and educate our children for eternity. If we teach our students “wisdom’s ways” it will lead them down straight paths (Proverbs 4:11). Please allow me to come alongside you this year and utilize the gifts and talents God has given me to support you and your child!

Hi, everyone!

My name is Mrs. De La Cruz, and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor. My job is to provide mental and emotional health support for students as needed. This means supporting students in the development of healthy thinking and emotional self-regulation, either individually, in groups, or in classroom settings.

Philippians 4:8 says, “Whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.” I believe God cares about our mental and emotional health and provides us opportunities to grow healthy and strong in these areas.

Sometimes counseling looks like figuring out how to navigate a mental or emotional concern. Other times, it’s simply having a space to problem-solve or talk something through. If you or your student want to learn more about the services I provide, please do not hesitate to contact me. You can contact me by calling the school and asking to speak with me, or email me at [email protected]mcseaglesoh.org to arrange a call (please do not include personal/sensitive information via email).
