Building relationships is an essential part of the Selwyn House mission.  As school counsellor, my role is to support, advocate and advise the Selwyn House community members. School counselors assist students at all levels, from elementary school to high school graduation and beyond. They act as advocates for students’ well-being, and as valuable resources for their educational advancement.  I will try to best meet the needs of the Selwyn community by addressing the personal, social/emotional, and psychological issues that may arise.  I can provide opportunities for the Selwyn community to  make informed decisions and broaden their knowledge and skill base.   The focus is always on trying to make students feel and be as successful as they can and have a plan for their goals and how to achieve them.

I’m just a phone call or an email away.
I’m here to help the Selwyn community of students, parents and faculty.
I look forward to meeting, talking or hearing from you at your convenience.

School Counsellor

Apart from email and phone contact, I would also encourage you to reach out to me by Google Chat (Hangouts) to schedule your appointment. 
Bell Let’s Talk Day is January 28 and Selwyn House School will be joining in to help create positive change for mental health.

On Bell Let’s Talk Day, Bell will donate more towards mental health initiatives in Canada by contributing 5¢ for every applicable text, call, tweet or TikTok video using #BellLetsTalk, social media video view and use of the Facebook frame or Snapchat filter.

The pandemic has affected every aspect of our lives, including mental health. When it comes to mental health, now more than ever, every action counts. There are many actions big and small that we can do to improve our own mental health and the lives of people living with mental health issues and the Bell Let's Talk initiative is just a starting point.

Together, the students at Selwyn House School can join in to help create positive change. Remember that our teachers, counsellors and principals are here to listen and provide you with support.
