What is a Wellness Counselor?
As West Morris Regional's Wellness Counselor it is my role to provide students with the support they need to navigate the challenges they face in high school. Through groups, individual meetings, classroom presentations, assemblies and clubs we empower our students with conflict resolution, assertive communication and resources that will support them while building resiliency.
I truly believe that my role with our students is to provide them with support while increasing their self-esteem so they become empowered and responsible adults.
I am passionate about assisting our student's with developing Mindfulness tools which will help them regulate their emotions and learn to respond to adversity rather than react impulsively to their challenges.
