About the Counselor

This is my 8th year working as the School Counselor at St. Lawrence School.  In 2002, I received my Bachelor's degree in Psychology (with Minors in Family Development and Spanish) from the University of Dayton.  In 2004, I received my Master's in School Counseling from the University of Cincinnati.  Prior to St. Lawrence I worked as a School Counselor at Catholic Social Services in Northern Kentucky.  Please feel free to call or email if you ever have ANY questions or concerns.  My email address is    


What does the counselor do?

My role is to advocate for the needs of children in order to help them learn better while they are here at school.  This includes one-on-one counseling, classroom programs, groups, mediation, consulting with faculty and parents, and providing crisis intervention when necessary.

For a list of the Counselor programs or some of my favorite websites see below.
