West Morris Central High School

Wellness is an integral part of who we are and how we deal with the many facets of life. It is being in a state of good health, both mentally and physically. While the environment and the individuals around us can impact our wellness, it is important to remember that YOU have the control to change your habits and the outlook on your environment. Once you are in the driver's seat, you can begin navigating around some of the unexpected obstacles that life throws on our road to personal growth and success.

As your Wellness Counselor, I will be supporting the guidance department while also working closely with the Student Assistance Counselor (SAC) and Child Study Team (CST). Supplemental support will also be provided and available to staff, students and families in the Wolfpack community. Some of my other responsibilities include, but are not limited to; classroom lessons, short-term individual counseling, group counseling, 504/I&RS, Behavioral Support Program (BSP) assistance, and REACH (peer leadership program).

Below is an introduction video about who I am, since it may be difficult to meet face to face with everyone! Please feel free to reach out and tell me a little bit about yourself. The link for my YouTube channel (The Wolfpack Wellness Studio) is below, where I will record wellness tips/lessons and repost helpful videos. My Instagram account link and YouCanBookMe link are also below. Click the "Resources" button on the top of the page for student, parent, and staff resources. You can also click the "WMCHS Virtual Zen Zone" link to explore various exercises and activities. My office is located in the Guidance Office (Main Office). Remember, no one is stronger than the pack!
