WELCOME! I have been a Brunswick Blue Devil for 25 years. I started at Edwards Middle School teaching Art, and have now been a guidance counselor for 15 years. I look forward to working with your kids throughout the school year.
BRUNSWICK'S SCHOOL COUNSELING COMPREHENSIVE PROGRAM promotes student success, provides preventative services, and reponds to identified student needs by addressing the academic, career, and personal/social development of all students through a variety of services:
*Classroom Guidance Lessons are designed to reach all students in a meaningful way. Lessons are taught once a month in each classroom and address academic skills, character education, personal and social success, and future planning.
*Individual Student Planning helps students to prepare and cope with life changes and transitions, define goals, understand themselves and others, and resolve conflicts. Student referrals may come from parents/guardians, staff, and students themselves. I see students individually anywhere from one time, to several weeks, depending on the topic and the student's needs.
*Responsive Services are provided to students with specific, immediate needs. These needs might include, but are not limited to, coping with a crisis or loss, adjusting to a new school, or dealing with a major change in family structure. Responsive services are provided through individual and small group counseling, as well as consultation and referrals to outside community professionals trained in mental health services and other specialties.
Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns. I am at Memorial, Mondays, Wednesdays and Friday afternoon.
