As the school psychologist/associate professor at Henry Barnard School, I wear many different hats in a position that I love! This is my ninth year working with an incredible community of families, students, and colleagues.
I teach social skills in all classrooms utilizing a variety of social/emotional curriculums and activities. I also have an open-door policy, where students know they can always come to talk with me about any problems or worries. I believe in supplying my students with the tools and resources they need to problem-solve independently. I am continually consulting with teachers and parents to supply them with strategies and resources to help their student or child to be successful, and also help to prepare our fifth-grade families and students for middle school by hosting events and helping to facilitate the transition. I am always happy to help my students and families!
Outside of HBS, I am also very active at both the state and national level for school psychology. I am on the board of the Rhode Island School Psychology Association (RISPA) and am very involved in Child Maltreatment and Trauma board of the National Association of School Psychologists (NASP). I am also a Licensed Mental Health Clinician (LMHC) in the state of Rhode Island. I believe that the knowledge and skills that I acquire in these outside roles goes to further benefit my students, families, and faculty at Henry Barnard School.
