Hello Bison Family!

     Students, the last couple of school years have brought many challenges, but none that are too great for us to handle together. I will assist you with things that are affecting your academic, personal, and social lives as well as the career that you would like to pursue. All things that are said privately are confidential; unless you tell me that you want to hurt yourself; someone is hurting you; or that you want to hurt someone. Remember that it is my job to protect you, foremost, even if that means protecting you from you. 

     Parents/Guardians, naturally I would never leave you out. There are tabs to the left of this narrative that will provide you with resources. Please feel free to contact me as well, and I will be more than happy to assist. These are uncharted times but we will get through them together. My contact hours are between 8:00 a.m. - 3:15 p.m., Monday - Friday, and you may contact me by email or by telephone at (205) 231-2745. I look forward to seeing and hearing from you all!

     Counseling referrals can be made by students, teachers, or parents.  Once a referral has been made, an appointment will be set. Appointments are set during perspective grade-level Unified Arts periods. Students will not be seen during academic time, unless it is absolutely necessary. Teachers will be informed of where students are during these times, to ensure that we maintain safety and security.
