Welcome to Mrs. Brenda O'Barto's Counselors Corner

Hello, and welcome to my school counseling page!  My name is Brenda, and I have been a school counselor for 11 years. I received the Bachelor of Arts in Psychology and Master of Education in School Counseling from Indiana University of Pennsylvania. I continue to grow my education and knowledge through trainings, workshops, and college credits.  

I am the mother of 7 children, 2 biological, 3 adopted and 2 step-children. I have 10 grandchildren. I live with my wonderful husband, Shawn and two Saint Bernards who keep me busy. I love the outdoors and am an avid home remodeler who loves to work with power tools.
