Meet your school counselor

Greenwood

I am a school counselor with a Pupil Personnel Service Credential. I received my Masters of Education in Counseling and Development from Lamar University. I also have Bachelor of Arts in Speech and Communications from Texas A & M University, and Master of Education in Curriculum and Instruction from Texas A & M. I started my career in education in 2001 teaching speech, debate, oral interpretation and theatre arts to high school students. I bring my dramatic background into my counseling work with many creative expression activities. I work with students individually, in groups, in classroom guidance activities, in student leadership, and in school-wide climate and culture initiatives. I am energized by helping students develop the skills they need to uncover their talents, strengths, and build towards a meaningful life.

We know these are uncertain times. Making sure you have accurate and up to date information is crucial to being prepared and not scared. Try to keep your children's access to media limited so as not to bring about undue anxiety. Please email the counseling team if you need advice or individualized support for your child during these next few weeks.

What is School Counseling?

School counselors work with students on a range of issues from school work to classroom behavioral concerns to social relationships such as navigating friendships and bullying to emotional hurdles that make focusing on school challenging. It is appropriate for a school counselor to work with a child if something is going on in their life that is directly affecting their schoolwork or experience on campus.  School counseling is not the same as child therapy, social work, or school psychological services. CLICK HERE to read more about the differences.
