From the Counselor....

Welcome to the 2017-2018 school year at Lobit Middle School! I know that many of you have been through some hard times because of Hurricane Harvey. Please know that I am here for you and your children. Let me know if there is anything I can do to help. You and your family may benefit from many available resources.

About Me

Working with children and helping them grow emotionally and academically is a passion of mine. I have been an educator for 22 years. I have experience teaching in Houston ISD, Fort Bend ISD, Clear Creek ISD, and now counseling in Dickinson ISD. I am finally a GATOR! I am a graduate of The University of Houston with a B.S. in Interdisciplinary Studies with a minor in Psychology. I graduated with a Masters in School Counseling from Lamar University. I followed my mother's footsteps with a heart for working with children. I have one wonderful son who is a college student named Bailey.

How Can I Help?

Individual counseling provides students with the opportunity to explore feelings, thoughts, and behaviors in a private, one-on-one setting with a trusted adult. Group counseling gives students the experience of working with two or more students under the guidance of the counselor in order to address feelings, thoughts, behaviors, and/or to learn specific skills. The purpose of both individual and group counseling is to work on academic, personal, social, and emotional issues so students will be prepared to focus on school achievement. Counseling is voluntary and without a guarantee. This is a free service and you or your child may stop counseling at any time without any negative consequences. At times, sensitive or difficult topics are addressed, which may bring about emotional discomfort. However, dealing with these issues can lead to better understanding and acceptance of self and others.

What is school counseling?

School counseling is a program designed for a professional school counselor to give support, offer encouragement, and teach skills in the areas of personal/social development, academic achievement, and career goals.
