My name is Christie Fernandez and this is my first year as the school counselor at Kings Manor Elementary School. I am a National Certified Counselor and am licensed by the Texas State Board of Examiners as a Licensed Professional Counselor. I earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Interdisciplinary Studies, specializing in early childhood education, from Stephen F. Austin State University. I earned a Masters of Education in School Counseling and Licensed Professional Counseling from Sam Houston State University.
My professional background includes eleven years of teaching at the elementary level, three years as an elementary school counselor, and one year as a high school counselor. I have worked as a Clinical Therapist in the psychiatric hospital setting and in private practice for eleven years.
I look forward to working with you and your child to help promote a wonderful school year full of success both academically and emotionally. As a school counselor I provide classroom guidance, group counseling, responsive services, community resources, and referrals to community mental health and consultations. I am available to meet with parents to discuss their child's needs.
