I have been the school counselor at Olympic View Elementary School since Fall 2010. Before that, I taught middle school and high school in Los Angeles and Tenino. In addition to my teaching certificate, I have an ESA certificate from St. Martin’s University, and I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor. My experience has given me a chance to work with students pre-school-12th grade. I am a people-person by nature, and consider it a sacred trust to help families get the resources that they need to have happy, healthy kids.
As school counselor, I am available to meet with students individually, in friendship groups, and in small social skills classes. Your child may find me in the gym supervising breakfast, in the classroom talking about healthy ways to handle conflict, or helping with celebrations for our Self-Managers. I am busy, but not in too big of a hurry to hear your concerns about your child’s social and emotional health.
If you would like to schedule an appointment to meet with me, feel free to contact me by phone or email.
