Dear Parents,


My name is Rebecca Chinchilla and I am the Counselor at VRES.  I am a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor and a Licensed School Counselor.  First and foremost, it is my goal to help your child get the best possible education by promoting a whole child approach.  A good education includes not only learning to read, write and do math, but also includes learning good personal-social skills.  This means, among other thing, learning how to get along with other children, making good social decisions, controlling anger, accepting responsibility and being aware of individual strengths and weaknesses.  Many of these skills are taught at home.  It is my intent to supplement learning that takes place at home with whole classroom instruction and small counseling groups when needed.  Students do not receive individual "therapy" in the school setting.  If you are in need of such services please let me know.  

I am also here to help students who are facing particular difficulties.  Such family disruptions as illness, death or even divorce may affect a child's ability to learn while at school.  If your family is experiencing anything out of the ordinary, please let me know so I can support your student.

As a resource at your school, I am also here to help parents.  If you have a particular concern about your child, I welcome the opportunity to meet with you to discuss your concerns.  Please feel free to email or call me.



Rebecca Chinchilla, MA, LPCC
