School Counseling Program

 
Dear Students, Parents, and Staff: 

Our school counseling program goal is to serve as a resource for all students, school staff, and parents.  I provide a comprehensive program that provides social-emotional and behavior support services that can be used to enhance school climate and optimize the learning and social-emotional competencies of all students.  Thi is done through a variety of services and activities provided within the 3 school counseling domains: 1. Academic, 2. Career, and 3. personal/social development.  I provide classroom lessons, individual and group, crisis support, consultation and referrals to community resources.  

School Counselors are professional educators with a mental health perspective.  With this training we are able to function as facilitators between parents, teachers and students in matters concerning students’ goals, abilities and areas needing improvement.  

Students, I am here to help you with: 
  • Working out friendship problems
  • Setting goals
  • Working well with others
  • Feeling good about yourself
  • Adjusting to a new school
  • Learning how to make decisions
  • Managing your feelings (stress, worry, anger, etc.) 
  • Dealing with peer pressure and bullying 

Parents, I am available to assist and provide you with:
  • Exploring ways to help your child succeed
  • Improving parent-child communications
  • Referrals for community resources
  • Understanding the developmental changes of childhood
  • Supply reference materials
  • Information to help understand your child’s needs
