Hello MES students, families, and staff!

My goal as Montezuma's school counselor is to provide support and care to our community. As a school counselor I follow the guidelines and professional standards set by the American School Counseling Association (ASCA). ASCA stresses that my role in our school is to help students create attainable goals and healthy behaviors. School counselors are required at minimum to have a master's degree. We differ from mental health counselors in many ways- most important to understand is that we do not provide individual long-term counseling. I am always ready and willing to check in with students and provide resources to great mental health counselors in our area.
