Small Group Counseling
From here you can peruse detailed information about the types of issues I work with most commonly. There are links to additional resources for support at home.
This page covers the various lessons I teach to larger groups. I work closely with the teaching team to uncover social and emotional themes present in the classrooms each year. I take these themes and build fun, interactive group lessons. You can look at sample lessons plans and explore the various themes from this page.
Counselors are available for immediate responsive services in the case of crisis events. Information about grief, coping with loss, self-harm and suicide is provided here.
College and Career Planning
This is a newer project our school has committed to taking on. Introducing students to career and college exploration in elementary school will provide them the opportunity to establish a foundation for more in-depth conversations and exploration about their futures in later years.
School Wide Programming
I develop and implement school wide programs that are aligned with school goals. This includes peer leadership activities, anti-bullying campaigns, social/emotional curriculum, character education, and other school wide initiatives. I also work with the whole of the educational leadership time to create, manage, and assess school policies that support every child. This includes oversight of the Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports.
I have been trained to facilitate parenting classes through the Triple P Parenting Program and have worked with our school's Community Family Liaison to offer evening classes for parents who are interested and seeking help.
