As a secondary school counselor located in Iowa, I have worked with grades 7-12 and currently work with grades 10-12. I have experience working with all students, including at-risk and diverse learners.
Prior to becoming a school counselor, I worked in higher education.
To support and empower all students in achieving success as learners and citizens through comprehensive, developmental counseling programming based upon the ASCA National Model and focused on growth in academic, career and social-emotional domains.
Theoretically, I emphasize elements of person-centered, gestalt and existential counseling.
