My office is located within the counseling office at Liberty High.
Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday
I began serving as a school psychologist in 1995, working at Liberty High School since 2007.
I attended San Francisco State and Seattle University.
I enjoy the engaging in the discovery of how a student best learns and the subsequent design and implementation of appropriate programming.
School psychologists help children and youth succeed academically, socially, behaviorally, and emotionally. They collaborate with educators, parents, and other professionals to create safe, healthy, and supportive learning environments that strengthen connections between home, school, and the community for all students.
School psychologists are highly trained in both psychology and education, completing a minimum of a specialist-level degree program (at least 60 graduate semester hours) that includes a year-long supervised internship. This training emphasizes preparation in mental health and educational interventions, child development, learning, behavior, motivation, curriculum and instruction, assessment, consultation, collaboration, school law, and systems. School psychologists must be certified and/or licensed by the state in which they work. They also may be nationally certified by the National Association of School Psychology (NCSP). The National Association of School Psychologists sets ethical and training standards for practice and service delivery.
