Welcome to the West Marin-Inverness Counseling page!

I am so excited to begin another year at WMS-INV. My goal is to provide students with a safe and nurturing relationship in the school environment, allowing them to take emotional and academic risks to further their growth and development.

I truly love connecting with our community and look forward to hearing from you!

What Do School Counselors Do?

School counselors advocate for the mental health needs of all students by offering services that promote awareness of mental health. School Counselors address barriers to academic, career and social/emotional development through short-term counseling interventions, social/emotional curriculum, classroom education through presentations/circles and referrals to community resources for long-term support.
