Counselor's Corner

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.


Here are some of the services we currently provide to our students and families:

  • Conflict-resolution program called Kelso’s Choice to help students problem solve on their own
  • Child Study Team (CST) meetings to help identify/create academic and behavior support plans
  • Crisis intervention and individual counseling for students in crisis
  • Friendship groups, leadership groups and other small-group counseling focused on building age-appropriate social/life skills
  • Schoolwide SEL curriculum, Think Social, focused on building confidence, resiliency skills and expected behaviors
  • Partners Advancing Character Education (PACE) classroom instruction
  • Positive behavior supports and preventative behavior interventions
  • 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
  • Refocus/calm-down area located in the counseling center
  • Section 504 Accommodation Plan development/case management
  • Schoolwide PBIS 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


It is my intention to be available to help in any way I can, so please don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any questions about the well-being of your child.
