I am happy to be back for my 6th year as a school counselor at Brinton Elementary.  I was born and raised in Arizona.  I attended the University of Arizona for my bachelor’s degree in psychology.  Then, I attended Arizona State University for my master’s degree in counseling, with a focus on school counseling. I enjoy hiking and being surrounded by nature, traveling, skiing, yoga and dancing.  
Most of all, I enjoy working with elementary students and seeing their growth throughout the school year.  

I will get to know students through teaching classroom guidance lessons, small group counseling and individual counseling to promote their academic and social success.  I am there for them as someone to listen and help guide them through any problems or situations that arise.  

Please feel free to call, email or stop by, I am glad to assist in any way that I can.  

My role as a school counselor is to:

  • Serve as a student advocate
  • Help students master academic and career  competencies
  • Present guidance lessons to all classrooms on self-knowledge, conflict resolution, responsibility, cooperation, choices, friendship skills, and more
  • Provide small group counseling on study skills, family changes, personal loss, and other issues
  • Provide student assistance with issues such as self-esteem, anger management, school success, and social skills
