    Dear JCHS Students and Families,
     
    I am here to support you during this challenging time.  
     
    As a Student Assistance Counselor, I provide confidential counseling and consult to students around an array of social, emotional and mental health issues.

    I am available to support any JCHS student in grades 9-12. 
     
    During the school closing due to the COVID 19 crisis, I may be able to help with things like:  
     
    • Creating Routine & Structure
    • Maintaining Emotional Balance 
    • Nurturing Yourself, Relating to Others
    • Anxiety-related issues 
    • Stress-Management
    • Family Support/Conflict

    I am connected to many local therapists, mental health agencies, and social services. I can provide confidential referrals to mental health/substance abuse treatment providers. 

    Parents/caregivers are welcome to call me for consult or guidance. Please see the side-bar for information about the Live Webinars I'll be hosting on Mon. March 30th and Tues., March 31st: Routines, Structure & Supporting Your Teen During COVID 19. 

    As we embark on this new landscape of "remote learning", please know that I am available.  Just email me and I'll get right back to you. 

    Please click on the topics listed on my side-bar for more help and resources.  These will continue to be updated over the next week with resources that may be especially helpful during this time.
