Welcome to the Counselor’s Corner webpage! My name is Jody Shapiro, and this is my 8th year as the counselor here at Pasadena Park Elementary. I earned a Master’s Degree in Psychology from Eastern Washington University and my School Counseling Certificate from Gonzaga University.
Before working as a school counselor, I worked as a therapist in the public mental health system. In my free time, I enjoy long distance running and learning about history and current events. And I'm a big Boston Celtics fan!
I work closely with our new counseling assistant, Nichole Zamora, to provide a comprehensive guidance program. Here are some of the services we provide:
I continue to be grateful to work at such a wonderful school and to serve the West Valley community. Please feel free to contact us in the PR room if your child is having a problem or conflict that is getting in the way of his/her learning. For issues outside of school that require long-term counseling, we can provide you with names of licensed counselors and psychologists in the area.
Best wishes for a great school year!
