School Counselor - Crystal Springs Elementary

How can an elementary school counselor help my student?

As the school counselor, I am a member of the educational team here at Crystal Springs - I'm an educator! I'm passionate about teaching students social-emotional skills and concepts that will help them throughout life. I teach in various settings and formats, including classroom lessons, small group instruction, and individual supports.

Here are some of the topics I discuss with students:

  • Friendship

  • Social Skills

  • Emotional Regulation (Controlling big emotions)

  • Anxiety

  • Coping & Resiliency Skills

  • Changing Families

  • Self Concept (Self-esteem)

  • Grief

*If you are a TEACHER or CS staff member who would like a student considered for support by the school counselor, CLICK HERE to fill out a short form.

*DISCLAIMER: School counseling support is not a substitute for students who need more intensive counseling or therapy. If needed, I am happy to talk with parents about the process of finding a mental health provider outside of school. Once this is set-up, I can also serve as a connection point between the school and the outside provider.
