My Students

Welcome to my Counseling Corner! My Title I school is 88% ELL. We have a large Guatemalan population. We are very community oriented and I want to reinforce their Social and Emotional Learning.

My students are learning to create a strong school community by showing empathy to one another!

We engage in activities based on our different feelings. We practice various coping strategies including mindfulness. My Pre-Kindergarten through 4th grade Elementary students care about each other and their school community!

My Project

School Counselors wear many hats! I am also an LPC candidate and I use play therapy to help my students connect emotionally. Relationships are the foundation to a therapeutic environment. Play allows the student to express feelings and emotions while we build a therapeutic relationship.

Theraplay is a child and family therapy for building and enhancing attachment, self-esteem, trust in others, and joyful engagement!

I want to add Theraplay training to enhance my relationships with my students. This training will also help with parental coaching and continue developing my skills in Play Therapy. Please help me continue to grow as a School Counselor and Therapist!
