Meet your School Counselor

 About Ms. Maher

I am excited to be part of the Mission Valley team as your school counselor!  I recently joined Mission Valley in October, 2021 and it has been a wonderful and rewarding experience.  For the past three years I have worked as a Sped. Counselor with K-8 grade students at Evergreen School District.  I have a Bachelors degree in Liberal Studies from East Bay University and a Masters degree in Counseling Psychology along with a PPS credentials from Alliant International University, San Francisco. 

While I enjoy all grades levels, I truly love working with primary school students. Your children are at an exciting time in their lives as they begin to develop their academic self-concept, self-confidence, self-awareness, and social skills.  It is my goal to help your children learn to navigate friendships, create and maintain social relationships, make decisions, problem solve, manage their emotions, and much more.  

 The following are services I provide:

  • One-on-one counseling sessions

  • Group counseling sessions

  • Classroom counseling lessons

  • Open collaboration and communication with parents/guardians to support student success

  • Support school personnel

  • Collaboration and consultations 

  • Crisis counseling

  • Community resources and referrals

I am looking forward to meeting you and to helping our student(s) succeed in their own personal goals for this school year and beyond. Please don't hesitate to reach out.  I am here to support all the wonderful families, students and the amazing teachers/staff of Mission Valley Elementary school. The best way to reach me is via email or via Request for counselor support form which is listed on the upper left side of my webpage. 

Go Beavers!
