St. Anthony School Counseling Program

 

Purpose

 

The Counseling Program at St. Anthony School supports all members of the Community through various programs and services to promote students’ holistic wellbeing. It is designed to aid the academic curriculum in honing students toward becoming “joyous, loving, and Christ-centered people who are capable of serving others and bettering the world”.

The delivery of programs and services work towards having a multi-tiered system of supports in responding to the behavioral and socio-emotional needs of students, which aims to break the barriers to academic success.

The School Counselor

 

I earned both my bachelor’s degree in Behavioral Sciences (2003) and Master’s degree in Counseling (2005) at De La Salle University in Manila, Philippines. Having spent most of my counseling career working with adolescents in high school and college settings, I am truly blessed with the opportunity to grow in my vocation and support younger students here at St. Anthony School in fully achieving their God-given potentials.

 

As a Lasallian educator, I consider all interactions with students as an opportunity to “Teach Minds, Touch Hearts, and Transform Lives”. I actively seek to support those who are considered “the last, the lost, and the least”, students who are considered vulnerable to failure due to their psychological and scholastic impediments. I value student differences, encourage expressions of uniqueness, and applaud excellence. Moreover, inspired by the images of Christ as the Wonderful Counselor and the Good Shepherd, I continuously strive to become a witness of God’s love and grace to students.
