Mrs. Danielle Kudela, LCSW
Hi! My name is Danielle Kudela. I Graduated from Niagara University with a Bachelors in Psychology in 2007 and in 2009 graduated with a Masters in Social Work from the University at Buffalo. I am a Permanent Certified School Social Worker and became a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in 2014.
I have had experience working with children and families in various settings, including schools and agencies. I have also participated in several trainings, including Play Therapy, Trauma Counseling and Restorative Practices. From 2009-2013 I was a therapist at Catholic Charities in Amherst providing individual, family and group therapy at the agency, as well as in private schools.
This is my tenth year here at Lewiston - Porter. In that time, I have serviced students in grades 3-12, supporting their social, emotional and behavioral needs and work with support staff, teachers, administration and related services to better support the students. Out of school referrals are made when necessary.
As of the 2021-2022 school year I am full time at the Middle School working with 6th-8th grade students and am excited to be available full time in one building!
I am available Monday-Thursday until 3:10 and Fridays until 2:40. Wednesdays are my designated Office Hours from 2:40-3:10.
Feel free to reach out to me at anytime! :-)
