    As the Student Assistance Counselor my role is to help students identifyand use positive coping skills when experiencing stress, conflict, peer pressure, anxiety and other challenging circumstances. 

    In addition, I also

    • work with students individually, and in small groups and conduct classroom presentations
    • provide referral information to additional services in the community if needed

    I am the advisor of an afterschool club called the Youth 2 Youth Club. As a group, we create and organize monthly activities that promote a healthy lifestyle for students.
