K-12 Tuition Free Public School

Counseling Team

Welcome to SCVi! I am Theresa D’Ambrosio, a fifth-year counselor at SCVi. I graduated with my master’s degree in school counseling from the University of LaVerne in 2007. Prior to counseling, I was an Early Start program coordinator for special education. I also have a background in sensory processing and play therapy. I enjoyed being an Early Start coordinator; however, I am loving the opportunity to be a school counselor. The past four years have been a wonderful growing experience as I have gotten to know learners and their families. I will be offering many counseling services this year for all grade levels, small groups, and individual counseling programs. I am here to be a resource and support for all SCVi learners. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact me at theresa.dambrosio@scvi-k12.org.

Welcome to SCVi! I am Karlyn Johnson, the upper school counselor (grades 9-12). This is my third year at SCVi and my twelfth year counseling in schools. I have my master's in educational counseling and my PPS credential. Prior to working at SCVi Upper School, I worked with elementary, middle school, and high school students in Santa Clarita school districts valley-wide. I am currently working toward my LPCC state license with an emphasis on the psychotherapy model in addressing emotional barriers.

SCVi is a great place to be! As a school counselor, I truly believe all learners can learn. My goal is to help meet the developmental needs of our learners by challenging emotional barriers to learning while facilitating successful interventions. I offer many counseling services through small groups and individual counseling programs. I am here to be a resource and support for all SCVi learners. If you need to reach me, you can e-mail me at karlyn.johnson@scvi-k12.org.
