Welcome! 

I have a positive, strengths-based approach to counseling.  I focus on bringing out the strengths in kids while balancing it with addressing their challenging behaviors.  I incorporate the research-based concepts of developing “emotional intelligence.”  The objective is to help kids calm and center themselves so they are able to learn in school.  In addition, I focus on developing the social skills necessary to get along with other kids in social and academic situations.  

About Me

About Me

This is my 9th year at Settler's Point Elementary.  I was the Social Worker for 3 years and this is my 6th year as the COPE Counselor.  I grew up on a lake in Michigan and went to junior high in Vienna, Austria.  I moved to Arizona in 1992 to attend Arizona State University where I earned a Master of Social Work degree.  I worked as a Family and Child therapist before working at Settler's Point.  I currently provide education support counseling as the COPE Counselor.
