Sue Curfman, President and CEO




Meet Sarah McGrath, School Liaison Counselor at COMTREA. I provide therapy and resources/supports to students, their families, and school staff in the Jefferson County School Districts. This year, I am servicing schools in the Northwest School District. I collaborate with school staff and provide more intensive therapies that the school counselor is not able to provide or that their job does not allow the time and intensity to provide to students. I conduct group therapy, individual therapy, collaborate with teachers and staff to support students, and connect with parents and caregivers to provide support for carry-over at home and/or other resources available to assist the student and family, overall.

The school liaison position is very important due to the amount of time we can spend with a student versus a school counselor. I was a school counselor for 11 years, and one of the drawbacks was time constraints; this did not allow for developing therapeutic relationships. As a liaison counselor, I get to build therapeutic relationships. I can dive deeper into a situation, not just teach, but practice skills with students to better themselves. I am able to have conversations with families about medical and mental health needs that unfortunately school staff are limited to discuss. School counselors really depend on the services that the liaisons provide for kids. Many times, as the school liaison, I am the only way that a child can receive some more in-depth therapeutic interventions and that is really important!

Life throws crazy, unexpected things in our path, but one thing I have learned is the power of relationships and kindness. All it takes is one friendly smile or a simple “hi” to change someone’s day, know that they matter, and have purpose in this world.”
