Bio:

Hello!  My name is Diane Kent and I am your School Counselor!  This is my third year at Youngs Grove Elementary and I am so happy to work with such a terrific group of students.  This school year comes with some unique challenges, so please do not hesitate to contact me with any question or concern.  I am always ready to assist your student with any academic, social or emotional concerns.  I am also a resource for parents and guardians: please call or email me if you would like to discuss helpful parenting techniques or strategies that can help through transitions, life changes and trials.

I received a Bachelors of Science degree in Psychology from the University of Colorado in 1999.  I then went on to earn a Masters of Science in Counseling and Psychology from Troy University in 2005 and a Masters of Education in Professional Counseling from the University of West Georgia in 2018.  I earned my Specialist Degree in Professional Counseling from the University of West Georgia in 2019.
