School Counselor

Welcome to the Chagrin Falls Middle School Counseling page.
CFMS School Counseling Mission: 
The mission of the CFMS school counseling department is to provide a comprehensive program to advocate for students’ academic, personal/social, and career development by working collaboratively with students, parents, teachers, administrators, and the community.  We strive to empower students to reach their full potential by identifying needs/barriers, providing both proactive and reactive interventions and programming, and instilling knowledge and skills to equip students for lifelong learning. 
My goal is to make middle school a successful learning experience for your child.  This includes academics but extends well beyond them to a variety of other issues as well.  I am always available to meet with students and help them manage a variety of situations.  Please contact me at any time.
