Sarah Hanks- Counselor

My name is Sarah Hanks and I am excited to be the school counselor at Prairie Crossing this year! I have a Bachelor's Degree in Criminal Justice and a Master's Degree in Couple and Family therapy and School Counseling. This will be my 1st year working in the schools and I am very excited for this journey.  I have a passion for working with children and have a strong belief that the child and the family are the experts and focusing on the whole child is paramount in building relationships and creating pathways to success. 

When I am not counseling, I enjoy reading, creating memories, and spending time with my family. My husband and I have three incredible little boys ages 5, 7, and 9. They keep our lives busy and our hearts full. We love traveling together and spending time outdoors enjoying the beautiful Colorado weather!

My approach to school counseling is largely solution-focused, and I strive to recognize the child as an active participant in the process of growth. My goal is to provide every PCE student with the tools they need to be happy, to find success, and to embrace the world around them.
