Bloomfield is a buzzing place. Check out what is happening.

Take a look at the different services offered to students and families. If you have any questions, feel free to contact me and we can brainstorm strategies and options to meet your needs.

Supportive Counseling

An Individualized Approach

Students have the opportunity to check in with me on an individual basis. How can this be requested? By teacher, parent or student themselves. Individual check-ins are provided for a short period of time to help students work through transitions or help them process changes occurring in their lives.


Small Group Counseling

We Learn Together

A variety of small groups are offered to students who may benefit from spending some extra time developing academic, social, or emotional skills along with their peers, and to students who are coping with similar life situations.  Groups can have anywhere from 3-4 members and usually meet once a week for a period of 6 to 8 weeks.


Classroom Curriculum

Learning And Working As A Community

Classrooms receive guidance from Mrs. Unger and myself. Lessons last typically 30 minutes and can cover topics such as problem solving skills, mindfulness and essential life skills.
