On May 14, 2006 I graduated from Long Island University with a Master's Degree in School Counseling.
 
I have currently entered my second year working as a School Guidance Counselor for Webster Elementary School in the state of Florida.  Every day is a learning experience; I believe that school counseling is the toughest job you will ever love.
 
Not only am I a Guidance Counselor, but I am also a member of several administrative committees, and the Leader of the "Positive Behavior Support Team." 
 
Before entering the field of School Guidance Counseling, I obtained  a great deal of experience in the counseling field as a Respite Worker for the Pederson-Krag Center.  I worked in a therapeutic program committed to servicing Suffolk county children and youth, ages 5 to 18, who are diagnosed with severe emotional/behavioral difficulties and who require individualized, structured treatment with a trained professional in a family/home setting.
 
These youths did not require 24 hour awake level of supervision, and were capable of establishing relationships, accepted the responsibilities of being integrated into a new family unit, and had the potential of functioning in the community.
 
In order to helpe my clients  accomplish their goals, I provided the  following array of flexible supportive and educational services:
  • Respite care
  • Individualized in-home family education
  • Specialized educational respite - tutoring
  • Parenting workshops
  • Support groups
  • Parent advocacy
  • Transportation support
  • Food pantry
