My Philosophy 
  • Mistakes are opportunities for growth.
  • Every child is unique, special and capable of growth and progress.
  • School counselors work with all students, school staff, parents, and members of the community.
  • Parenting adolescents can be difficult and requires consistency, support, and patience.
  • Counseling is the process of helping people by assisting them in making decisions and changing behavior.
