Counselors guide with an open mind and heart...

Welcome to my school counseling web-page. As a school counselor, my mission is to provide counseling services to all students in the areas of academic, career, and personal/social development.  Also, to provide information, strategies, resources to students and families that will assist them in their academic needs and future goals. Lastly, to promote a learning environment that is safe, nurturing and culturally responsive.

 

Educational Journey Experience: I graduated from UC Davis in 2006 with a Bachelors  degree in Psychology and minor in Education. I've always had a passion to help others and had the opportunity to work as a tutor and outreach worker for Hayward Unified. After two and half years at HUSD, I decided to pursue School Counseling Masters Program at CSUEB.  I graduated with my Masters Degree in Counseling with a PPS credential in 2010 and have been counseling in schools since then.

My favorite thing about being a counselor is building relationships with students, families and teachers.
