I am excited to be joining the Winkler team this year as your 8th grade counselor. There is so much to think about in 8th grade, especially what questions and expectations about high school and beyond. I look forward to helping my students make decisions that will bring them closer to their goals.
I was born and raised in New Jersey, and moved to North Carolina in 2009. I LOVE the mild NC winters, but miss the delicious NJ pizza and bagels.
I earned my BA in Psychology and my MA in Community Counseling, both from The College of New Jersey. I worked for fifteen years in community mental health centers, providing therapy for children and teens in both NJ and NC.
In 2016 I earned a Post-Masters Certiicate in School Counseling from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte; this is my 4th year as a school counselor. My interests and specialties have included treating trauma and anxiety, and using innovative counseling approaches including equine assisted therapy and experiential counseling.
