Hi, I am thrilled and honored to begin my first year as Manor Elementary's school counselor. I am new to Manor Elementary this year, but have been with Manor Independent School District for the past three years. I attended San Angelo State's counseling program as well as St Edwards' University where I received my Master's in Counseling.
I have a passion for helping kids feel safe and supported in the school community. I incorporate a cognitive-based approach as well as art and creative arts therapy approaches into counseling, working through our guidance curriculum, in small group sessions and individual counseling sessions where students work on building their sense of self, empathy, and emotional regulation both in the learning process and beyond.
When I am not at school, I live with my husband and two young boys, whom we refer to as the Troubles, Colin (age 5) and Clayton (age 4). When they are not keeping me on my toes, I love to run, do yoga, and enjoying the outdoors. I am excited to be a part of the Colt Family this year!
