                         Welcome To My School Counseling Corner


                                       school counseling



     My role as a School Counselor is to provide a comprehensive program that addresses the academic, personal, and social emotional development of all students in an environment that is nurtured by our Catholic faith. My efforts to support all students in these areas are part of a collaborative model that includes our students, teachers, administration and parents.
 I believe that every student needs support during a time of rapid change and growth. Students face diverse challenges personally, socially and developmentally that have an impact on their academic achievement. This is a time when students begin to develop their academic self-concept and their confidence as learners. They are beginning to develop decision making, communication and life skills, as well as character values.As a School Counselor, I have the opportunity to provide education, prevention and intervention services. I believe that social-emotional learning is essential in removing barriers in learning and in promoting academic success. The skills  students gain through social- emotional learning, serve as the foundation for future success. 
    My love for School Counseling comes through in every thing that I do with the students that I serve and I am excited to be able to share my passion in a Catholic School community.
