Welcome to my home page! I am the School Counselor at Romeo! I am passionate about Social Emotional Learning and encouraging kids to find their "Ah Ha" moments.


My purpose is to work with students to promote academic, emotional, and social development through individual and group counseling, classroom lessons, and referring families to community resources when needed.  Listed below are COVID-19 resources.  On my resource page you will find additional information and resources.  I miss the students and I cannot wait to get back to school to see their smiling faces.


Please contact me if I can be of help.
