Degrees and Certifications:
Hello! I am a new counselor at KTA Sureno.
A little about my background… I graduated from George Mason University in Virginia then recieved my MBA from Strayer University in Maryland. I worked in the business world (National Geographic being one of my favorite!) for some time and then decided to make a career change! I graduated from ORU in Oklahoma with a masters in Counseling and then moved to AZ in 2006. I have worked at numerous clinics in public mental health and most recently worked at a psychiatric hospital in Tempe. I enjoy spending time with my husband, Mike and daughter, Sasha. I absolutely love the beach and reading. I love to sing at my church and work in the children’s ministry.
I am excited to work with the KTA family. My wish for every KTA student is to be healthy, happy, safe and successful. I am looking forward to working with you and your student over the next school year! As the school counselor, I will work together with you to support your child’s social and emotional needs. My door is open to you at any time. It is proven that student’s academic success can be fully realized when they are emotionally healthy. I am here to walk with you and your family on this journey. I want to assure you that our sessions together will be kept in the strictest confidence. Be advised that treatment may be difficult and emotionally painful as issues are worked through in the process. These times are usually short lived and can be beneficial to healing. Please contact me at any time to discuss your child’s specific needs. I look forward to meeting with you.
