School Counselor

respect weekWelcome to the School Counseling Page!  It is my intention to inspire the children at Allen School and to encourage them to be the best that they can be.  I have been working with children for many years and I enjoy the warm climate the families and their children bring to help complete Allen School. 
I am available to assist in many areas.  I specialize particularly in behavior, social skills, family transition and self-regulation/anxiety. I am a firm believer of hands-on learning and would like to provide an atmosphere to guide the children in a positive direction.
I spend my time getting to know the children through lessons in the classrooms, various small groups, individually and throughout the school.  I hope that the children feel comfortable reaching out to me for assistance and to participate in role model activities and helping others.  As the anti-bullying specialist, I am particularly fond of identifying children who demonstrate kindness to and acceptance of others.  At Allen School, we strive to be UP Standers!
