I have been a school counselor at a large, public school since 2012 with caseloads of students ranging from about 400-450 per year. We have 6 school counselors, and we follow our caseloads through graduation. I am about to have senior students and have followed them since 10th grade. I have supervised two graduate level interns as they continued their education to become school counselors.
I am a data-driven school counselor who finds herself using reality therapy counseling techniques most of the time. I counsel individual students on academic, social/emotional, and career needs.
Our school is a designed ASCA RAMP School as of 2017. This is a huge honor as we are the only high school in our 14 high school district to have received it. This recognizes our data-driven, student focused initiatives and programming. I was a top 3 Teacher of the Year nominee for my high school last year. I have presented at my state conference twice and hold the ASCA U Leadership Specialist Certificate. I am trained in the Prepare Crisis Intervention Model and serve on the crisis intervention team in my district. I am a National Career Development Facilitator, and I am a member of my state (PSSCA) and national (ASCA) organizations.
