Sherry Ward


Welcome! I am the new School-Based Mental Health Professional at Destrehan High School!  I am a Licensed Professional Counselor and have been employed with St. Charles Parish Public Schools for 14 years now.  

My role is support the social-emotional wellnes of the students and faculty at DHS.  While I work very closely with the counseling department, I am not here to take their place. Parents and teachers will still refer students who are in need of counseling support to their designated school counselor so that they may offer their support as well. 

This year I am eager to introduce new social-emotional wellness initiatives! Some of the initiatives will include reducing the stigma surrounding mental health, as well as building awareness of the CASEL Social-Emotional Learning Competencies.   

I am looking forward to an amazing year!  Please feel free to email me if you have any questions.
