Mary Cannek – M. Ed, EDS, School Psychologist


Hello!  I’m Mary Cannek and I’m thrilled to be a part of the Living Pono team as this year's intern.   I have worked with public and private school children for 12 years in hopes of maximizing their learning potential and helping them enjoy the overall school experience. I have expanded my counseling skills over the past year to provide cognitive-behavioral therapy and mindfulness in a clinical setting.  I provide a joyful and calm disposition with both adults and children.

My education consists of an in process Masters in Counseling, a Masters in Education and a Specialist Degree in School Psychology from National Louis University which affords me many skill sets including but not limited to

  • Therapeutic Counseling Sessions for adults, teens and children

  • Psycho-Educational Evaluation and Play-Based Assessments

  • IEP and 504 development and implementation

  • Behavioral Interventions within the school setting

  • Identification of Learning Disabilities and Developmental Disabilities

  • Coaching for improving overall cognitive efficiency for children and teens

  • Collaboration with families and schools for special education service coordination

I look forward to working with your family!​
