Being a Professional School Counselor in Laurel for almost 2 decades is a complete joy for me!
Working with children in consultation with you, our staff, and my supervisors to support student achievement and success comes in many forms. As a state-certified school counselor with a master's degree, our mission is to provide services in three domains: academics, personal/social, and career orientations.
We guide with lessons in the classroom, small groups, one on one visits, and crisis interventions as needed. We follow state and national guidelines through the Montana School Counselor Association's suggested model, the American School Counselor Association suggestions as applicable, and our Aces Consortium directives to support your student. It is very organized. I am a member of both MSCA and ASCA, am actively involved with ACES, and also attend the conferences they provide annually. I have also served on our MSCA state board in executive positions with over 10 years of service. I have worked for over 43 years in the field of counseling and hold two degrees and one certification. Thank you for allowing me the opportunity to share what I know with you and your student!
