I am happy to be back in counseling. I began my career as a wellness counselor, working on my hours towards licensure as a Marriage and Family Therapist. I completed those hours and received my license, and through the process learned that I really enjoy working in the high school environment. I obtained my Counseling Credential and starting working in the public school system in the East Bay Area. Before long, I took a job in Private Catholic education at Moreau Catholic High School in Hayward. Most of my time in Catholic Education has been at Jesuit High School. I have enjoyed the Ignatian spirit and the collegial environment here. I spend my time counseling, teaching AP Psychology and moderating two clubs (Vinyl Record Appreciation and the Star Wars Club). I now have two sons attending here and look forward to many more years of working with JHS students and their families.

*Mr. Farr is the counselor for students in the Magis Program as well as many Juniors and Seniors with Academic Support Plans.
