Mrs. Gabby O'Kelley, Ed.S, NCC

Hello everyone and welcome to Trickum Middle School, aka the greatest middle school in the nation! Go Tigers! I am Gabby O'Kelley and I will be supporting all 6th graders at Trickum. I graduated from Georgia College & State University with a Bachelor's degree in Psychology, Georgia State University with a Master's degree in School Counseling, and University of West Georgia with a Specialist's degree in School Counseling! Middle school is such a vital transitional period, and I know our students need support from all angles. I am ready to offer support to students in areas of academic achievement, career, and social/emotional development to ensure they reach their fullest potential. When you walk into my office, you will see dim lighting, cozy pillows, and many items used in play therapy, such as kinetic sand, miniature figures, stuffed animals, and other fidgets. I find that when students come to my office, they feel calm and centered. In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my family, friends, husband, my daughter, and three fur babies. As the 6th grade counselor, I am here to offer my support to the students and their families as they navigate middle school. Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns you may have.
