    Keith Orchard and Raelynn Loken oversee mental wellness support work in our schools. 

    Keith and Raelynn meet regularly with teachers and staff in our schools to discuss our "whole student" approach to nurture and grow the cognitive, emotional, relational and physical being of each student.

    Keith also focuses on community engagement and collaboration with partner agencies and organizations. Strengthening these community connections will ensure we are able to provide wrap-around services for students who need that level of care.

About Raelynn

I was born and raised in Coeur d'Alene. I attended Coeur d’Alene Public Schools and married my high school sweetheart. Together we have two beautiful daughters. I spent the first 8 years of my career in Child Welfare and served as the Therapeutic Support Classroom Social Worker at Lakes Middle School and Venture High School the past three school years. North Idaho is my home and the mental wellbeing of my community is very important to me. Serving in the schools I once attended is an honor. I am proud of my school district and thrilled to be a support to staff, students and families.

Erin Duncan / Mental Health Counselor, LMSW

About Erin and Blue

Coeur d’Alene has been my home for many years. I was fortunate to attend elementary, middle, and high school in the CDA School District. After completing my graduate degree in Social Work at Boise State University in 2022, I began a professional career with the District as a Mental Health Counselor. Blue, aka "good-dog", is often by my side.   

My work with children focuses on trauma informed care, Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT), Trust-Based Relational Interventions (TBRI), Animal-Assisted Interventions (A-AI), and facility dog program/policy development. I am trained in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) through Emdria and am a Making Sense of Your Worth (MSOYW) Facilitator through the HALO Project. My goal is to provide space for people to feel empowered, understood, worthy, and wanted.

About Roni

My experience and interests include working with children 0-18 and their families. I have a person-centered approach to working with students to ensure they are receiving the best care possible for their goals. I primarily utilize aspects of play therapy coupled with Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT). My passion is to support collaboration between students and their support system, community resources, and newly learned skills. 

I am currently working towards my LPC licensure and have experience working with children who have experienced trauma, grief, varied mental health diagnosis and suicidal ideation. I am a former elementary school counselor and criminologist. Some of my personal interests include travel, fitness, and spending quality time with family and friends.
