Counseling Vision Statement:
Student belief of the instrumental role that each of them have in the future of our world.
I am excited to be the School Counselor at Oak View Elementary this year! I have a Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology and Criminal Justice from Indiana University. My Master of Education and Education Specialist degrees in Counseling are from the University of South Carolina.
Your Comprehensive Developmental Counseling Program includes classroom lessons, small group counseling, individual counseling, consultation with parents and teachers, schoolwide programming, and community involvement. I conduct classroom lessons 1 to 2 times a month and meet with small groups as needed. Students can be referred to see me by themselves, parents, teachers, and their friends.
If you ever have any questions or would like to speak about any concerns at school, please feel free to email or call me. My office hours are 7:30am to 3:00pm, and by appointment. We are in this online adventure together!
