School Counseling

The school counseling program is an essential component of the total instructional program that supports the personal, social, education, and career development of all students.  The program assists students in learning the skills and attitudes necessary to be successful.


What does a school counselor do?

Classroom Guidance – I visit each class twice a month from September through April.  Our guidance lessons focus on personal/social, academic, career, and character education topics.  Lessons are planned around personal/social, academic, career, and character education topics.  Activities include stories, games, drawing, writing, role playing, and videos.

Individual Counseling I am able to provide brief solution-focused counseling services for students who may be experiencing problems that impact their learning.  I also will be glad to make referrals to outside agencies.

Small Group Counseling – Small group counseling provides students an opportunity to practice new skills in a more comfortable and supportive setting.  Small groups will meet during the school day and require parent permission. Small group topics may include anger management, friendship/social skills, separation/divorce, grief/loss and self-esteem.

I am happy to meet with you throughout the year about concerns that you may have for your child.  Please feel free to email me or call me at 494-8200.
