Welcome to my counselor’s corner. Here you will find information about my counseling program and parent resources to support you and your child throughout the school year.  I am here to help your child in every capacity I can.  
My program provides comprehensive school counseling to all students that includes:

  • Helping students with their emotions. 
  • Supporting students in their academic, social, emotional, and career development. 
  • Consulting with parents and teachers in the development of children and their behavior. 
  • Responding to a crisis. 
  • Individual counseling as needed. 
  • Group counseling for anxiety, making and keeping friends, families in separate homes. 
  • Classroom instruction on character education and safety. 

A child can reach me through their teacher, an administrator, find me in room 259B, or parent contact.
