AAI Counseling & Support
Angela Steuart, School Counselor
Angela Steuart earned a Bachelor of Science in Psychology from Weber State University in 2015 and a master’s degree in Educational Psychology with a School Counseling Emphasis in 2017. Angela’s theoretical orientation to counseling is Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). While school practitioners cannot provide therapy in the school setting, CBT is a framework that analyzes student behavior by looking at the thought processes of children and adolescents. She applies this philosophy to the counseling setting. For reasons of practicality and application, Angela also integrates a solution-focused approach while providing individual counseling. Angela is focused on the individual. She enjoys interacting with students, finding out who they are as an individual, and exploring ways for them to be successful in their educational pursuits.
Tessah Kimball, Counseling Assistant
Tessah Kimball earned a Bachelor of Arts in Cultural Anthropology and International Studies from the University of Utah in 2021. While completing her studies, she volunteered with Catholic Community Services, a local nonprofit that specialized in refugee resettlement. Tessah worked mostly with refugee women and children, helping them to understand American customs, teaching them about the COVID-19 pandemic, fixing Wi-Fi connections when needed, and any other tasks that were required. Tessah has always had a passion for helping others and working at AAI has allowed her to step into the world of social work. Tessah hopes to continue her studies in the future and to help as many people as possible.
Cecile Robertson, Scheduling Coordinator
Cecile Robertson is a native of Southern California where she enjoyed the beach — whether it was walking along the pier, riding the waves on a boogie board, or just listening to the ocean crash while watching the sunset. She attended Mt. San Antonio College and the University of California Riverside where she studied to be a paralegal. Following her education, she worked at several law firms which eventually brought her to Utah at the age of 27. Eventually, Cecile decided she needed a change of scenery and ventured out into the world as a flight attendant for a few years. She married and became the mother of two children, which kept her busy at home for a time.
It was only a few years later that she reinvented herself as a virtual tour photographer in the tourism and real estate industry. As her children grew, she worked as a teaching assistant and in customer service while attending Stringham Real Estate School. She graduated as a licensed real estate agent in 2018. Cecile joined the AAI team in 2020 as the scheduling coordinator in the counseling department. In her current role, Cecile enjoys the opportunity to interact with and support students, parents, teachers, and staff and to achive the goals set forth collectively by the counseling team.
