10th-12th Grade

Hello Bearcats!  I happily serve students at Aledo High School with last names Rh-Z, grades 10-12.  This is my 6th year as a counselor at AHS. Prior to being in the counseling office, I was an English teacher and department chair for 17 years.  I am a Bearcat to my core and love to help new students thrive in this environment.  High school years are fleeting but can be so stressful. It is my goal to help students navigate through this exciting time.   We quickly go from planning high school courses to planning a future.  Often I tell my students, this is where you take time to figure out what you want your later years to look like. I am here for students’ social-emotional needs as well as any academic planning and guidance they may need during their years at AHS. I look forward to serving you!

  • CONFIDENTIALITY

    While it is important that a student's conversations with a school counselor be kept confidential, confidentiality does have its limitations. According to the American School Counselor Association's Ethical Standards for School Counselors, counselors must "keep information confidential unless legal requirements demand that confidential information be revealed or a breach is required to prevent serious and foreseeable harm to the student."(American School Counselor Association [ASCA], 2010).

    The most frequent type of breaches include a student verbalizing the following:

    1. Verbal, Physical or Sexual Abuse

    2. Neglect

    3. A desire to harm him/herself

    4. A desire to harm someone else

    5. An unreported sexual assault
