Keep Calm

Mrs. Jennifer Basilone

  • Welcome to the Counseling Department. My door is always open to assist students & families with any personal or academic concerns. I encourage open communication and look forward to working with you.  

    I received my BA in English and Secondary Education, as well as, my MA in Counseling from Montclair State Univerity.  I did my post-graduate work at William Paterson University.  

    Moreover, I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in the State of NJ working in private practice and hold the following certifications: School Counselor, Director of School Counseling Services, Substance Awareness Coordinator, English Teacher and Elementary Teacher.

    Utilizing an integrative approach, I work from a wellness model when I counsel students both individually & in groups.  I am a member of the school's I&RS/504 Team, and I am also the Anti-Bullying Specialist who investigates all HIB claims.
