Access to Mental Health Services in Moreland
Moreland School District’s Counseling Program offers free, comprehensive school-based counseling supports to students. These services are provided by licensed and pre-licensed mental health professionals and credentialed school counselors. Services offered are evidence based, positive and strengths focused, and include individual, group, and whole class therapies in areas such as: stress management, coping and social skills, strategies to deal with grief and loss, anger management, conflict resolution, substance abuse therapy, and academic empowerment. When needed, the school counselor may also refer the student to outside professionals if school-based counseling is not sufficient to meet a student’s needs. Parents interested in referring their child to on-site counseling services may contact their child’s school office to obtain referral and consent forms.
The vision of the Moreland School District Counseling Program is for all students to depart empowered with the knowledge and skills necessary to achieve academic, personal/social, and career success, and to reach their fullest potential as respectful, responsible citizens.
The mission of the Moreland School District Comprehensive School Counseling Program is to advocate for an environment that supports high achievement for all students and decreases barriers to learning, allowing students to become effective learners, responsible citizens, and productive members of a global workforce. In collaboration with other educators, families, and communities, this comprehensive school counseling program will maximize student potential and enable all students to experience educational success by providing preventative and responsive services in the areas of academic, career, and personal-social development to help students overcome challenges that interfere with learning and reach their fullest potential.

I am very excited to be at Latimer Monday through Thursday this year! It is my 6th year working in the Moreland School District and my 5th year at Latimer. In previous years, I only saw kinder through 5th grades. But this year, I am supporting all K-8 students at Latimer. I am a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and a Registered Art Therapist. I also have a Child Development Degree which helps me understand the various stages kids are going through at each age/grade level. Go Lions!!
