Welcome to the 2021-2022 school year at RES! This year will be filled with a great deal of growth - Academic, Developmental, and Emotional - for your child. I enjoy watching when they succeed and I am available to help when there are bumps in the road. It is exciting to be a part of their lives as they become leaders in our school and community! Below is information regarding our school counseling program. If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to contact me!



  1. A.C.E.S. Lesson in the Classroom-A.C.E.S. stands for Academic, Career, Emotional, Social. Each month your child’s class will have a brief lesson with the School Counselor. Topics may include careers, growth mindset, emotions, friendships, self regulation and bullying.


  1. Individual Counseling - I will offer counseling to students when a need arises and at the parents request. Additionally, I am available to consult with parents, coordinate services with outside providers (counselors, doctors, etc)  Please contact me directly if you feel your child may benefit from counseling.


  1. Group Counseling - Topical group counseling will be offered and may include relevant themes such as family changes, grief and loss, self-esteem, anger management, worry/anxiety. These groups will be offered based on demand and require parental permission.

Parenting Isn't Easy!
