Hello, and welcome to the River School Counseling web page!
Carmel River School is an incredible community of students, teachers, and staff. We have the gift of wonderful supportive families and an exquisite setting in which to do our work. As the counselor for River School, my role is to help students recognize and grow into their full potential. I have the privilege of consulting with teachers, parents, and children, all with the aim of navigating the bumps in the road and maximizing the inherent goodness and abilities within each child.
Recently our district-wide counseling program has shifted gears to align more closely with the American School Counselor Association's National Standards. This shift has led us to re-evaluate the nature of our work and to hone the direction of our program with an eye to maximizing positive effects for our students.
