• Welcome to the Counselor's Corner!

    During the school year, I will be teaching a number of character/social skill lessons in the classrooms. The lessons will focus on making good decisions, setting goals, dealing with peer pressure, bullying, relationships with others, and careers. All students in will be taught Kelso's Choices which focuses on conflict management skills. Teaching students to be problem solvers and critical thinkers is an essential component of the developmental guidance program at Carson Elementary. 
    I will also be forming groups to help students deal with some common problems. Some of the groups may have topics such as divorce, grief, building self-esteem, building friendships, and learning to manage anger. I will also be focusing on the development of social skills in some groups. Please contact me if you are interested in your child receiving group counseling.
