Elementary school is an exciting time of learning and growing, and students are exploring many new emotions as they navigate this time in their lives. As your child's school counselor, I am dedicated to providing a data-driven comprehensive, responsive, and preventive counseling program that fosters all student's social-emotional, academic, and career development. I deliver multiple tiers of counseling support to students through whole group (classroom) counseling lessons, small group opportunities targeting a specific skill or issue, and individual counseling sessions for students needing short-term (6-8 sessions) solution-focused interventions. If an issue or skill appears to interfere with a child's academic or social experience at school, I encourage both teachers and parents to consider requesting the student join a small group, or to receive short-term, individual counseling services by filling out counseling referral form that you can find on left tab.
This webpage provides information about Counseling services at Moulton Elementary as well as some resources you can use at home. Should you have any questions or concerns about your student or the school counseling program, please feel free to call the school or email me.

School Counselors are bound by confidentiality. Conversations between the student and counselor are considered confidential. However, there are exceptions to this confidentiality. If a counselor has reason to believe that a student is being abused, neglected or is a danger to himself/herself or others, the counselor has the legal, ethical and professional responsibility to report such concerns to the parents or the appropriate authorities.
