Welcome to our school counseling page! I am so excited to work with the Neil Armstrong community.
I am a mom of twins, a certified yoga instructor, a credentialed English teacher and school counselor, and a lover of nature and animals. When I’m not at work, you can generally find me hiking in the hills with my dog, Eddie.
School Counseling Goals:
The school counselor will collaborate with teachers, administrators, school psychologists, Rainbow Room facilitators, social workers, parents, and other professionals to advocate for the equity and achievement of every student. The school counselor aims to build a comprehensive school counseling program to promote all students’ social, emotional, and academic development, as well as develop their college and career awareness.
I am passionate about supporting students’ mental health, advocating for social emotional learning, celebrating diversity, and empowering our youth to create positive change in the world. My belief is that, given the right tools, our students can overcome trauma, reset their nervous systems, and learn to regulate their emotions in order to work well with others and thrive, not only in an academic environment, but in all aspects of life.
School Counselors are an integral part of the Multi-Tiered System of Support (MTSS) team. The team will work together to ensure equitable access for all students to achieve the Common Core State Standards (CCSS). This framework also assists the school counselor in carrying out direct and indirect prevention and intervention services of various scales to Tier 1, Tier 2, and Tier 3 students.
- Guidance lessons (Tier 1)
- Small group counseling (Tier 2)
- Individual counseling (Tier 3)
- Response services: counseling and crisis response (Tier 3)
- Referrals (Tier 3)
- Consultation (Tier 1, 2, 3)
