My personal philosophy of counseling begins and ends with empathy and compassion. I entered this field because I have the desire to make a difference in the lives of today’s youth.
My goal at Whispering Pines Elementary is to cater to the needs of the whole student when it comes to their physical, emotional, and mental well-being. I believe that counseling is a pathway for growth and healing. It is an opportunity for the student to explore his or her own thoughts and behaviors in a safe environment. By building healthy relationships, I can guide students in establishing coping skills for themselves and help them recognize and correct their own patterns of misbehavior. I strive to encourage students to draw their own conclusions and choose the direction they want to take in resolving their issues. With the help of the WPE family I hope to plant seeds of integrity and respect in our students. GO PANDAS!!!
