A Note From the PSW
Dear Lake Balboa College Preparatory Magnet K-12 Families,
My name is Sara Fitzwater (formerly Sara Asghari) and I am the Psychiatric Social Worker at Lake Balboa. I started with the district and Lake Balboa College Prep in 2019. I love this school and helping to support the students, families, and staff. I provide social emotional support for students and families, as well as support with any other hardships that families may be facing. I also provide classroom, staff, and parent education on various mental health and social emotional topics.
I received my undergraduate degree at UC Riverside in Psychology and received my masters degree from CSU Long Beach in Social Work.
Please reach out to me if you feel like you need any support!
