A Little About Me:
My name is Miss J and I am so excited to be Hemmerling
Elementary School’s new school counselor. I am originally from Michigan (cool
points if you can point it out on a map!), graduated with my MA in clinical
mental health counseling from the University of Redlands, and recently
completed my school counseling credential. I love playing sports (especially
basketball and football), singing, spending time with friends and family, and
dogsitting my dog-nephews. My most favorite thing of all is building
relationships with students that inspire and equip them to succeed at
Hemmerling and beyond!
What I Do:
I offer short-term (4-8 weeks) individual and group
counseling to help students with personal, social, or behavioral problems that
are interfering with school performance. PLEASE NOTE: I do NOT provide therapy
for mental health disorders. Examples of things I can help with: • Making and
keeping friends • Anxiety or sadness • Controlling ourselves and our emotions •
Anger Management • Self-esteem and more!
The best way to contact me is via email at
firstname.lastname@example.org. You may also call my office at 951-922-0254 ext.

CONSENT: Once a student's counseling request has been processed, a school counseling consent form will be sent home for parent or guardian signature. This may be dropped off at the office or given to your child's teacher. Students will not be seen more than two times (outside of crises) without a signed consent form.
