Welcome South Buffalo Elementary Counselor Page!


As the school counselor for South Buffalo Elementary my role is to provide support to students, families, and teachers. A wide variety of students in grades K through 5 present a wide variety of needs, ranging from academic, social, emotional, and behavioral. I can provide support through observation, consultation, short-term and solution-focused individual counseling with students, small group counseling, and classroom lessons. If you have a concern about your child or if you have questions you'd like to ask, please contact me @ 724-295-9510 ext. 3599 or email.
