The philosophy of the Cristo Rey High School Counseling Department embodies mercy, goodness and service by embracing every student and their own personal needs. Our school counseling program supports all students in their academic, college, career, social, emotional, and spiritual development thus enabling them to become life-long learners and productive citizens in our communities and around the world.
What does a school counselor do? The Counseling Department at Cristo Rey High School is committed to assisting all students and their families in meeting the demands of high school and in managing problems that may arise in school, at home or in the community. Counselors assist students in understanding their abilities and social behavior. This comprehensive counseling program seeks to meet their personal, academic, college and career needs of our students. This is done in partnership with the student, parent(s)/guardian, their teachers and the school administration.

I have a Bachelor of Arts degree in Child Development from California State University of Sacramento and a Master of Science degree in Educational Counseling, along with a credential in Pupil Personnel Services from National University. I have been working as a school counselor since 2011 and my background stems in working with children from grades K-12 of all abilities and disabilities. It is a true blessing to be working with the students at Cristo Rey High School and I look forward to an exciting year!

I’m a Southern Belle tried and true, a military wife, and a mommy of three little ones. Originally from Charleston, South Carolina, I attended the College of Charleston where I earned my Bachelor of Arts in Communication. Then life found me teaching English abroad, where I decided to shift gears to pursue a counseling degree. I graduated in June 2013 from Capella University with a Masters in School Counseling and hold a California Pupil Personnel Services credential. This will be my third year counseling high school students, and I could not be more thrilled to be a part of the mission that is Cristo Rey!
Any information of a personal nature disclosed by a student in the process of counseling is confidential. However, while maintaining the anonymity of the student, matters of health, life, and safety may be discussed with the Principal and/or appropriate member (s) of the Administration. In addition, California State Law specifies six exceptions to this understanding of confidentiality: · Discussions with licensed physicians, psychiatrists, psychologists or other health care providers for the sole purpose of referring the student for treatment. · Reporting child abuse as required by law. · Reporting information to the principal or parents when the counselor has reasonable cause to believe that disclosure is necessary to avert a clear and imminent danger to the health, safety, or welfare of the student or others. · Reporting information to persons outside the school when a student indicates that a crime involving the likelihood of significant personal injury or significant property losses will be or has been committed. · Reporting to one or more specific persons in a written waiver after this waiver has been read and signed by the student and preserved in the student’s counseling file. · Disclosing confidential information when ordered to do so by a court of law.
