Masters of Education in Counseling Licensed Professional Counselor Nationally Certified School Counselor
Welcome! I am the new School-Based Mental Health Professional at Destrehan High School! I am a Licensed Professional Counselor and have been employed with St. Charles Parish Public Schools for 15 years.
My role is to support the social-emotional wellness of the students and faculty at DHS. Parents and teachers will still refer students who need counseling to their designated school counselor so that they may offer their support as well. I work collaboratively with the counseling department to ensure that all students' social-emotional needs are a priority.
This year I am eager to introduce new social-emotional wellness initiatives! Some of the initiatives will include reducing the stigma surrounding mental health and building awareness of the CASEL Social-Emotional Learning Competencies.
I am looking forward to a fantastic year! Please feel free to email me if you have any questions.
