Kooken Guidance Counselor

As the school counselor, I visit classrooms once a month delivering guidance lessons over topics such as bullying, respect, and cross-cultural awareness. Parent trainings in collaboration with our Family Involvement Rep on topics regarding their preschoolers. Along with guidance lessons and parent training, I meet with students individually and in small groups.

Some areas I can be of assistance to students, teachers, and parents are:


  •  Understand and accept themselves and others better.
  •  Cope with family changes.
  •  Develop decision-making and problem-solving skills.
  •  Feel safe at school.
  •  Learn to handle strong emotions, such as anger and sadness.
  •  Learn conflict resolution skills.
  •  Use positive character traits to assist them in daily living.

Teachers and Administrators:

  •  Create a positive learning environment.
  • Provide families with community agency information if needed/desired.
  • Develop community partnerships to enhance student development.


  •  Understand their child’s emotions, behaviors, and learning styles.
  •  Assist parents in meeting their child’s needs.

I strive to promote the importance of kindness and respect on a daily basis. Please feel free to call me with any questions or concerns.
