       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 you child in every capacity I can. 


The Counseling Program

My program provides a 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 115, or parent contact.
