Rebecca Cottle-Makhene,LPC, RPT-S, CATP

Originally from West Virginia, I have a dual undergraduate degree and masters from Marshall University in Psychology and Counseling.
My experiences are varied, from working at residential facilities for adults, children, and teens to working in social services as a protective services worker for children and families, and later as a court ordered therapist for abused children. With every role I have always had a passion for helping children and their families.  Throughout those roles I always felt as though interaction with the children everyday would be the best way to make a positive difference, this belief is what has lead me to school counseling. I began my school counseling career as the full-time counselor at Mullen Elementary in 2002.  Along with being a school counselor I am also a licensed counselor and provide therapy in the clinical setting for children and families at an outside agency. 
I may be contacted through email:
 or during school hours at 703.330.0427.

My name is Carrie Andrews and I am so excited to be a school counselor at Mullen ES! I grew up in Northern Virginia and went to college at the University of Mary Washington. I graduated with my B.S. degree in Psychology and then went to George Mason University to obtain my Masters of Education in School Counseling. Throughout my internship experiences, I fell in love with counseling at the elementary level. I strive to be a creative and engaging counselor and to support my students and their families in any way I can!
