I am the School Counselor at Barbara Morgan STEM Academy. Through classroom guidance lessons, small groups, and individual counseling, I am privelaged to help support the whole child at BMSA.
I use research-based approaches to help students gain peace of mind and empower them to choose behaviors that will lead to an upward cycle towards wellness and happiness. I emphasize Cognitive Behavioral Wellness which is the science of doing things to improve mental health. This doing includes a variety of things like self-talk, exercise, mindfulness, nutrition, expressive arts, connection with nature, writing, etc. My strength-based, solution-focused techniques help children find the qualities already within themselves to problem-solve.
The small group topics I run inlcude Friendship, Keep Your Cool (anger management), Chillax (Stress Management), Assertiveness, Family Changes, and Grief. Group Counseling Permission Form
