Let’s Help Kids Together
Here you’ll find resources to inspire and guide the social and emotional development of children.
School counselor, writer, mother, and unwavering optimist dedicated to inspiring the social and emotional development of children.
My mission is to help you turn your counseling program into the stuff of legend.
No joke. You’ve always wanted to change the world, and here’s your chance. Learn the tips, tricks, and strategies you need to build a school counseling program that helps kids reach the life they dream of.
School Counseling Tribe is a website born out of a passion for children and dedicated to school counselors everywhere, providing an all-in-one platform for educational training and inspiration for professional development.
Why “School Counseling Tribe”? Because this website is my way of building a community of school counselors who see the impact that is possible through their work and need the tips, advice, and motivation to break barriers and help the young people they serve become their best selves.
If you’re here, you’re ready to make some changes to your school counseling program.
Like me, you probably acquired all the dusty materials of your predecessor and can’t seem to find anything that is going to actually help you connect with your students in this century. And you are not about to be “that” counselor who rolls an old TV into the room and plays some dusty VHS tapes. No, that’s not you.
You’re dying to teach the kids what you weren’t taught–the things that you feel confident would’ve radically changed your life if you’d learned them in elementary school instead of as an adult.
You’re here because you don’t want to waste your precious time reinventing the wheel, but you’re not about to create some cookie cutter program either. You want the basics laid out so that you can make them your own.
Take a deep breath. I’ve got you.
Now, let’s get to work.
