        A Little About Me

This is my 11th year as a school counselor and my second year working in NP!  I am excited to be here and work alongside incredible staff members, inspiring students and caring families!  As a school-based counselor, I provide individual counseling, small group counseling as well as classroom guidance lessons that focus on Social Emotional Learning (SEL) and Character Education.  As you browse my site, I hope that you find insightful resources.  Please do not hesitate to reach out to me directly with any specific questions or concerns.  Since I am shared between both AWR and SB, email is the best way to reach me!  

Just Breathe 

Sometimes we forget how important a simple deep breath in and out can be to our well-being as adults.  I love sharing this video with students as it shows children teaching adults how to take a deep breath when they feel angry or frustrated.  Children learning from other children can be very meaningful.

Digital Citizenship 

While attending a conference a few years back, I came across a book titled The Technology Tail: A Digital Footprint Story by famed children's author, Julia Cook.  It is a creative journey through a computer's perspective as tweens navigate the digital playground.  I highly recommend reading this as a family or turning to it as a resource when difficult questions and scenarios arise while socializing online.
