As the only School Psychologist for the Philipsburg-Osceola Area School District, I work with students in grades K-12. I consult with teachers, administrators, and parents to come up with behavioral and academic interventions for students as well as conduct special education evaluations for students to determine their educational needs. Every School Psychologist has a different role depending on the school district they work for, the location of the school district or even depending on the school year. To me, one of the most important roles of a School Psychologist, regardless of those factors, is to offer support to the staff, students, teachers, and parents within my district. It is important to me to be here to listen, answer questions, and if I don’t know the answer to your question, I will work hard to find the answer for you. 

Also, I do have training in therapeutic techniques, but not to the extent of other types of Psychologists, such as Counseling or Clinical Psychologists. I am able to conduct individual and group lessons to teach skills including social skills, coping strategies, study skills, etc. I may also meet individually with students when the need arises. More than likely if a student has significant behavioral or emotional concerns, an outside agency for more involved services would be involved in order to best meet the student’s needs, with parent approval.
 
Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or concerns. I will get back to you as soon as I can! :)
