    • Stress management
    • Resources for mental health support outside of school

I am guided by the Ethical Standards of the American School Counselor Association as well as MI state laws. My work and time with students, families, and school staff will be kept strictly confidential with the following exceptions: a) the counselee is being harmed by self or others or is the unreported victim of abuse, b) there is a clear and present danger to another person, c) the counselee and I agree that some information needs to be shared with another person.  There are no fees associated with counseling services provided in school.

I am incredibly lucky to be supported by an amazing HMS staff, but also by my husband and 2 children. In my spare time, I love spending time with family, reading, listening to podcasts, and enjoying some time outdoors.  

Please feel free to contact me at any time regarding any questions or concerns.
