Welcome to the Counseling Corner! I look forward to getting to know your student(s) and working together throughout the school year. Please contact me if you have any questions or concerns. Thank you!What is a school counselor?
School counselors are helpers. They help students in areas of academics, social skills, and emotions. They work with parents and teachers in guiding students to do their very best and make good choices in and out of school.How do I work with students?
Counselors meet with students individually or in small groups to work on feelings, behaviors, and academic issues. We talk, draw, write, read, and play as a part of working out problems and developing good habits. While we can not do “therapy” at the school level, we can provide excellent referrals for counseling agencies in the community. Classroom lessons are another big way that counselors help students develop skills in citizenship, problem-solving, and working well with others.How does my student see the counselor?
Counselors take referrals through parent/guardian(s) and teachers. Students can also see me by leaving a note in my mailbox outside my office. All information is confidential unless it is a matter of safety.
