    Welcome 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. 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 in the classrooms, in 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.
