Hello!  I am the lucky person that gets to work with each child and their family while they are part of our Mapleton family.  I wear a lot of hats, and I love that.  As both an educator and a parent with children in the school system, I know we all have battles we are facing.  I can't use a magic wand and make those challenges disappear, but I promise I will help you through it.  If I haven't had the opporutnity to meet you or your child, feel free to stop by and see me so I can put a face to the name.   Thank you for entrusting us wiht your children.  We promise to love them like our own, as we know that they are your whole world! :)



What is a School Counselor?

As a school counselor, I am an educator trained in school counseling.  My goal is to develop, implement and evaluate a comprehensive school counseling program designed to meet the needs of ALL students.  


***If your child is in need of a mental health referral, we have a Pathways therapist in-house and I will be happy to help you with that process.
