Mrs. Rainho - School Counselor
Hi! My name is Silvia Rainho and I am the School Counselor at Gregory School. While this will be my second year at Gregory, this is my ninth year working as a school counselor. I received my Bachelor's of Arts in Psychology with a minor in Art from Kean University, and shortly after continued to pursue my Master's of Arts in Counseling Education with a concentration in School Counseling and Clinical Mental Health from Kean University.
Additionally, I have completed training in trauma-focused cognitive behavioral therapy, mental health first aid, along with ASD strength-based cognitive behavioral therapy training. I have also previously worked as a crisis screening counselor in Northern NJ.
I am passionate about elementary school counseling and focused on preparing students with the skills and tools needed to be academically, emotionally/socially, and professionally successful.
When I'm not at Gregory, I enjoy spending time with my children and my French Bulldog, Peach. I also enjoy spending time at the beach, I am a coffee enthusiast and I practice Krav Maga regularly.
If you ever have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me directly by either email, phone, or to set up an in-person meeting. I look forward to another exciting, positive school year at Gregory School!
Falo Portugues! Hablo Espanol!
