My goal with this blog is to keep parents up to date on counseling topics. I will post updates on what I am teaching in your students' classroom, as well as other topics that might best help your student to be successful at school. Some topics will be: friendship skills, bullying, anxiety, learning disabilities, anger, etc... I would also love to take your questions, and answer them! There are probably many parents in your community with similar questions.
If you haven't met me yet, here is a little bit about me:
I am originally from central California (Merced), and moved to Provo for college.
I got my undergraduate in Behavioral Science at UVU, and my Master's Degree in Psychology from Utah State.
I love soccer! I have played it since I was 5 years old, and have gotten to coach many teams also.
I have been married for almost 10 years to my husband, Matt, and we have a spunky 4-year-old girl named Amelia.
My previous work experience includes working with at-risk teens at treatment centers, working with teens and adults with disabilities, and working with foster children with behavioral disorders.
I will never turn down a doughnut.
I have three older brothers and no sisters.
I think I love Disneyland more than my daughter does
I was voted "most likely to become a teacher" in 5th grade
I love baking (not to be confused with cooking)
I played soccer for UVU (when it was UVSC)
My family is overly obsessed with BYU sports
I toured with my husband's band for 3 months when we were first married

I love kids and feel that every child has something to contribute
