School Counseling Activities

My School Counseling Philosophy

As a school counselor, I believe I ought to listen, support, collaborate, advocate, and problem-solve for everyone in my sphere of influence which includes students, teachers, administrators, parents, stakeholders, and community members.  I take these responsibilities seriously and make every effort to faithfully serve all people regardless of their race, gender, sexual orientation, color, religion, disability, national origin, or age.

My Personal Counseling Mission Statement

My mission is to provide an equitable and data-driven comprehensive school counseling program that will assist all students in acquiring the skills, knowledge, and attitudes needed to become successful students, responsible citizens, productive workers, and lifelong learners who are equipped to achieve their educational, career, and personal goals.
