About Me


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. 



What's new?


We know these are uncertain times. As we adjust to this new reality of educating and caring for our children and our selves during this shelter-in-place, it's more important than ever to rely on the support of our community. As a school counselor, I hope to continue to provide social-emotional learning for both families and students through information, lessons and activities, virtual counseling support, and opportunities for us to come together as families.


Here are the best ways to stay in touch with me during this school closure:

  • Join my Counseling Google Classroom for tips, worksheets, ideas delivered to you electronically on a daily basis. You just need to enter the CODE fc2tph7


  • Email to set up regular check-ins via phone or Google Meet. I will be reaching out to all of the families that I currently work with but am also available for individualized support to all of our students.



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.
