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!
