I hope your family had a fun and restful summer!  I am looking forward to a great year with Wortham Oaks Elementary and am here to support the social, emotional, and educational needs of your child.  I have been a school counselor for 20 years and have enjoyed working as an elementary school counselor for the last 15 years.   

I visit your child’s classroom bi-monthly to teach social emotional learning (SEL) skills and implement a school-wide guidance program.  I also provide short-term individual and small group counseling as needed.  I look forward to meeting you during the first weeks of school.  Please feel free to call me at 210-945-5750. In the event I am not available, please leave a message with a convenient time for me to return your call.
