Dear Parents and Guardians,
I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself, my name is Dr. Nicolya Williams and I joined the Heritage family as the School Counselor Intern in January of 2013 and began working at Heritage in August of 2015.
I would like to give you a little bit of information about me personally. I received a Bachelor’s Degree from The Ohio State University in Psychology. I then received my Masters from The University of Dayton in both Clinical Counseling and School Counseling. While in graduate school I worked in an outreach clinical counseling agency as well as at an Online School for at-risk students. It was during that time that I made the decision to spend my life working with children and families. I then went on to complete my Doctorate degree in Education with a focus on Transformational Leadership.
As a School Counselor, my primary responsibility is to promote the academic, personal, and social development of all students. I look forward to offering support to the students, staff, and also the families and the community. I will be meeting with students individually and in small groups, conducting classroom lessons, meeting with parents, collaborating with teachers and staff, and consulting with community organizations to benefit and meet the needs of all of our students and families.
Any student can request to meet with me or they can be referred by a teacher, administrator, or parent. I encourage you to reach out if you have concerns regarding your child. In addition, I have a brief survey that I ask each of you to complete so that I am able to use your input to best serve our students. Your input is very valued.
