Social Work & Counseling Services

Philippa Mason, LMSW

Philippa Mason is very excited to be back at Del Valle Elementary for her second year! Philippa believes strongly in using the language of play when working with children, and she seeks to make her office a fun space where children can feel safe to express and process big emotions. She completed her clinical training at the Austin Child Guidance Center, where she learned to provide trauma-informed individual and family therapy. She is a graduate of the University of Texas at Austin, where she received a Master of Science degree in Social Work and a Certificate in School Social Work.  

Prior to social work, Philippa worked as a strategy consultant partnering with school districts and government agencies. She still likes to bring this "big picture" side of her brain to work each day to support the families she works with in navigating systems and institutions. Philippa received a B.A. in English and a M.S. in Marketing and Management from the University of Virginia. 

Philippa is passionate about social justice, educational equity, and building communities of care. In her free time, Philippa loves to craft and sew, go camping, and spend time in the water.
