Lakewood Counseling Office
Welcome to my virtual counseling office! It's really hard to believe that things are so crazy right now. I know we are all dealing with our usual stuff plus health concerns and financial issues on top of that. I can't support students in the classroom in the same way I do when I can actually see them in person, but I'm working on ways to help bridge the distances between us right now. Stay tuned on your child's google classroom page because I'll be dropping in there, and I'll be adding stuff to my website so that we can stay in touch here. I'll also set up "office hours" after we get in a routine of "school" next week with our teachers. As always, reach out by email. I'm right here.
