Counselor

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.
