Counseling Philosophy: 

"I want to help every student achieve her maximum potential -- whatever that may mean for her. Each person's goals look different, so the only way to accomplish them is to form a strong connection between counselor and student. That way I can personalize my support for each person. Getting to know my wonderful, unique students and helping them achieve their dreams is by far the most rewarding part of being a counselor!"

Educational Philosophy:
