Counselor's Corner

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 Lobo 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 will advocate, collaborate and facilitate actions that promote a positive school climate, provide an opportunity for all students to access their education and achieve personal and academic success to meet the challenges of a rapidly changing world.

2nd Step

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.

The Second Step program is a social-emotional learning curriculum delivered via classroom guidance lessons by the School Counselor to all students.  Second Step is designed to promote skills and attitudes that increase students' success in school, help them get along with others, and create a positive school climate in order to prevent school violence and bullying.
