School Counseling


Dear Students, Parents, Faculty and Staff,

     What a wonderful start to this school year!  I am looking forward to serving your children as the counselor at Nan Gray Davis Elementary School!   

As a counselor, I seek to meet the needs of students and families. The components of my school counseling curriculum are listed below:

     Classroom Lessons

     Classroom lessons are taught to each class in Pre-K through Fifth Grade.  These lessons cover many character traits and seek to give students the necessary tools in order to lead healthy and successful lives.  Other topics covered in classroom guidance include cooperation, drug and alcohol awareness, health and personal safety, self esteem and bullying vs. mean behaviors. The lessons taught align to the ASCA Model Framework.

     Individual Planning

     Individual Planning consists of the scheduling and implementation of Individual and Small Group counseling sessions based on the individual needs of students and their families.  These sessions are scheduled based upon teacher referral.  Topics covered in Individual and Small Group counseling are personal, vary and can often change based on student situations.

     Responsive Services

     Counselors provide Responsive Services in the midst of crisis or emergencies.  These services are often unplanned and can occur on an immediate basis.

     System Support

     In System Support, counselors work directly with community agencies and organizations to better serve their students.  

   Making an Appointment

     *Please let me know if I can assist you and your child/children.  I can best be reached by email (, but you may also reach me through the school office.  If you would like to make an appointment, please contact the office at 221-1166.  Because my schedule is quite full, making an appointment will ensure that your conference time will be maximized and utilized efficiently.  Also remember that school counselors are not licensed professional counselors-my job is to temporarily assist your child during the school day.  If additional assistance is needed, I have outside resources that can provide long-term care.
