Counselor's Corner

Welcome to Millwood Kindergarten Center’s Counselor’s Corner! My mission as a certificated school counselor is to help support the social, emotional and developmental needs of all Millwood students. I also strive to help support parents, families and staff members in order to create a positive learning environment for all.


I work closely with our support staff to provide a comprehensive counseling/guidance program. Here are some of the services we currently provide to our students and families:

  • Conflict-resolution program called Kelso’s Choice to help students solve small problems on their own
  • CST (Child Study Team) meetings to help identify academic/behavior supports
  • Crisis intervention and individual counseling for students in crisis
  • Friendship groups, leadership groups and other small-group counseling focused on building age-appropriate social skills
  • Kelly Bear C.A.R.E.S. Program focused on building confidence and resiliency skills
  • PACE (Partners Advancing Character Education) classroom instruction
  • Positive behavior supports and preventative behavior interventions
  • Referrals to community resources including mental health therapists and child development/trauma specialists
  • Refocus/calm-down area located in the counseling center
  • Section 504 Accommodation Plan development/case management
  • Schoolwide reward system which includes positive rewards such as Cub Paws, students of the month and classroom parties
  • Weekend food program offered through Bite 2 Go/2nd Harvest and Victory Faith Fellowship


As a student advocate, I am here to help in any way I can so please don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any questions about the services listed above. Thank you for allowing me to be a part of your student’s education!
