Individual and Group Counseling

Individual or small group counseling can provide planned, short-term, and solution focused counseling. School counselors do not provide therapy or long-term counseling in schools; however, as the school counselor, I am prepared to recognize and respond to student mental health needs and am ready to assist students and families seeking resources and referrals.

Crisis Intervention

Provide support and assistance to students and families as they navigate crisis and emergencies by forming a team of support for the student by working closely with the family, administration, our SROs, and other medical or community professionals.


We work closely with teachers, students, and families to provide support when students may struggle academically and behaviorally in the classroom and on campus. From weekly check-ins to supporting a student in developing positive relationships with teachers and staff, it is my goal to assist all students in recognizing their own abilities to problem solve, ask for help, and reach academic and self-success.
