Counselor Corner


Welcome! I play a positive and proactive role in your student’s education as I teach social and emotional learning.

As a school counselor, my mission is to empower students by teaching life skills. These skills include how to cope with anxiety and grief, solve problems, identify and regulate emotions, communicate effectively, make friends, build confidence, and strengthen minds and bodies. I advocate for students and families in the following ways:

  • Teach monthly lessons in my classroom to all students that support the 7 Habits.

  • Lead fun team-building activities, sports, art projects, and games during lunch!

  • Provide individual and group skill-building sessions, such as Friendship Groups, to students (with parent permission form signed).

  • Connect families to community resources that provide for physical needs: clothing, food, shoes, school supplies, discounted medical care and mental health services, etc.

Please contact me if you have questions or concerns. I value your input – you know your child best! In partnership with parents and teachers, we make a great team!
