Ms. Ashley Olson

Hello! I am so glad to be at Harper Park as the school social worker. 

I received my Bachelors of Social Work, with a minor in Leadership Studies, from Christopher Newport University and my Masters of Clinical Social Work from Boise State University.  This is my 5th year at Harper Park and I am so happy to be a part of such a strong Unified Mental Health Team.  I live in Reston with my husband, baby girl, and two cuddly cats.  When I am not working, I enjoy spending time with family and friends, getting lost in a book, or taking a long nap! 

Who are School Social Workers:

  • Prepare Sociocultural Assessment for students in the evaluation process for Special Education services
  • Provide individual and group counseling for all students 
  • Facilitate counseling groups using evidence-based curriculum to address issues such as healthy decision making, social skills, anxiety, anger and stress management, mindfulness, etc. 
  • Provide case management services for our Homebound and Homebased, McKinney-Vento, and Foster Care students 
  • Participate in school-based Restorative Practices (RP) circles and conferences as a facilitator

 

If you have any questions or are concerned about your student, please feel free to reach out to me. I work very closely with our school counselors and school psychologist in order to best serve your student!
