Counseling

Hello Northvail Community.  As we make our way through this unprecedented school year, please know that I am here to support the children and families of Northvail.  If your child is having any academic, social, or emotional concerns, please reach out to me so that I can assist.  I am accessible via email or phone call.  If you would like, I can meet with your child in person, if he or she attends school, or remotely via a Google Meet.  I look forward to working with your family and assisting in any way I can.   

My name is Rick Breiten and I am the school counselor at Northvail Elementary School.  I have been the counselor here at Northvail since 2008.  Before becoming the counselor, I was a 4th and 5th grade teacher for 10 years at Rockaway Meadow Elementary School.  At Northvail, I am also the chairperson of the Intervention and Referral Services Committee, the Anti-bullying specialists and the coordinator for student’s 504 Plans.  I work closely with the staff, students, and families to create a safe environment where students can reach their full potential academically, socially and emotionally.  I feel privileged to have the opportunity to work everyday at Northvail Elementary School.  Outside of school, I enjoy spending time with my family, friends and attending my kids sporting events.
