I believe that when there is overwhelming STRESS, we tend to REGRESS. Everything goes on the backburner… even learning!

I am here to…

1....  first and foremost, help you be ready to learn. When something is on your mental, come free yourself up. Through short-term counseling, you can have the opportunity to name it to tame it!

2.… help you and your caregivers find the appropriate resources in your community that will best meet your needs, if you need additional support.

3.… provide counseling to those who have barriers to quality attendance and/or timely arrival to class.

4.… support students who find themselves in the “discipline loop.” We can work together to discover
solutions to manage one’s self here at school. You can do it!

5.… provide small group support to help you and fellow students learn from one another. No one here is alone in their problems and anxieties.

6.… support your teachers!!! Believe it or not, they are all on your side, but sometimes, they too benefit from making strong classroom connections, exploring effective classroom management, and maintaining emotional attunement with you and your classmates.

6.… advocate for you and your needs at various levels.

Keep in mind, counselors don't give advice, counselors give you time and resources to make the best choices for you and explore skills to help you be your best at school and beyond.
