Counselor’s Corner

Hello Students and Families! This year, as you may have heard, the lovely Alyssa Boyer, shifted roles to become our Head of Lower School. While those who know her are sad at her leaving her usual perch in the Upper School, we are all happy she has taken on this new task. She will be wonderful there! 

My name is Alisa Baden and I am a Licensed Clinical Marriage and Family Therapist. I have been working with children and families since 2012 and feel blessed to be joining the Independent family! I will continue Mrs. Boyer's legacy of serving all of our Pre-K through 12th grade students. My office is housed in the Upper School, and I am happy to meet with you regarding any questions or concerns. 

In addition to attending to the personal social needs of our students, I also am the SSD (Services for Students with Disabilities) coordinator. The Independent Policies regarding accommodations can be found in our student handbook. However, If you have any further questions, feel free to contact me at 316-686-0152 ext. 380.

I look forward to meeting each and every one of you as we travel together through the exciting world of education for your student.
