Welcome to Millwood Kindergarten Center’s Counselor’s Corner! My mission as your school counselor is to help support the social, emotional and developmental needs of all Millwood students. I am committed to educate, engage and empower parents, families and staff members in order to create a safe and thriving campus for all.

- Schoolwide SEL curriculum, Think Social, focused on building confidence, resiliency skills and expected behaviors
- Partners Advancing Character Education (PACE) classroom instruction

- Referrals to community resources including mental health therapists, child development/trauma specialists, housing, food banks, parenting workshops and clothing stores such as Teen & Kid Closet
