School Counselor

Parents/Guardians and Students, 

I am so happy to be the school counselor for Cabrillo Elementary School AND Forest Park Elementary School. I will be splitting my time between both schools as follows:

  • Cabrillo: Mondays, Tuesdays, and Wednesdays
  • Forest Park: Thursdays and Fridays

As a professional school counselor, I aim to build a safe and welcoming environment for all students. I am an advocate for students and work with the necessary stakeholders in order to foster students’ growth and support their academic, career, and social-emotional development. 

Through a comprehensive school-counseling program, I strive to create a school environment where students can have the ability to feel empowered, supported, and confident to reach their goals. The following are services I provide:

  • One-on-one counseling sessions to address academic, career, and/or social-emotional concerns.
  • Group counseling sessions geared toward academic and social-emotional concerns.
  • Classroom guidance lessons focused on academic, social-emotional, and career domains.
  • Open collaboration and communication with parents/guardians to support student success.
  • Support school personnel in the implementation of interventions, accommodations, and academic plans through Student Study Teams (SSTs), 504 meetings, and Individualized Education Programs(IEPs)
  • Collaboration and consultation with staff personnel to assist in implementing classroom interventions for behavioral concerns.
  • Crisis counseling for individuals with immediate and urgent concerns.
  • Community Resources and Referrals 

I attended California State University, East Bay for my bachelor's and master's degree. I hold a bachelor's degree in Psychology and a master's degree in Counseling with a concentration and credential in school counseling.  


Please feel free to reach out to me with any questions or concerns you may have.
