Welcome to my school social work homepage. I consider it a privilege to work with school children as they grow in their social emotional learning. Over the past years, the effects of the global pandemic have highlighted for both children and adults alike that our social emotional health plays an important role in our overall health. Effective communication, self-expression and self-reflection, social skills, mindfulness, and positive coping strategies are just a few of the vital skills which support a child's successful educational experience. I work with students in a variety of settings throughout the day; individual, small group, and classroom. Students and I work together on increasing social emotional learning, resolving peer conflict, supporting positive behavior choices, and creating strategies to enhance students' overall success in school.

Please look over the pages on this site for links to mental health support, community resources, social emotional learning and other information you may find helpful. Additionally, please feel free to reach out to me should you have questions or concerns regarding your child's school experience.
