About Comprehensive Counseling

I am available for scheduled appointments as necessary and will always do my best to help students and parents on a walk in basis.  Please, leave me a note if I am unavailable, and I will get right back to you.

In an effort to prevent social problems from occurring and to get to know each student better, I teach guidance lessons to each grade level throughout the year.

I meet with all 7th and 8th graders and their parents each year for their Career and College Readiness Plan meeting (CCRPlan).

7th grade CCR focus: connecting interests to possible careers
8th grade CCR focus: life beyond the OC (HS; 1,2,4 or more years of college; and career)

My purpose, and in accordance with the State Of Utah Comprehensive Guidance Standards, is to support your student through:

  • Individual academic planning
  • College and Career Readiness Conferences (CCR)
  • Counseling behaviorally and academically struggling students
  • Present and coordinate classroom guidance lessons and activities
  • Mediation with students
  • Assist principals and teachers with individual and school wide action plans
  • Provide community resources and referrals to families of students
  • Provide small and large group counseling services as needed

Please be aware that a school counselor does not:

  • Provide therapy for students or families
  • Perform disciplinary actions with students or teachers
  • Perform the same duties as a principal or assistant principal
