I am so excited to join the faculty and staff here at Yorba Linda High School as your new Wellness Specialist!
I have been welcomed with open arms by both staff and students, and I am looking forward to the opportunity to provide all the support I can here on campus. Let me tell you a little bit about myself...
I was born and raised here in Orange County, and attended Sonora High School and Fullerton College before transferring to CSULB to obtain my BA in Human Development and then my MS in Counseling, with Marriage and Family Therapy option. I have been a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist since 2004 and I am fortunate to have spent my career working with community organizations, school-based services, and crisis youth shelters to help build up Orange County youth and their families.
I am so excited to bring my experience and expertise to Yorba Linda High School and help develop an incredible mental health Wellness Program for PYLUSD.
I am in the Student Services office if you ever want to stop by to consult, ask questions, or seek any support services. Thank you YLHS for welcoming me into the Mustang Family!
