    Ways Your School Counselor Can Help You

    Monthly classroom lessons on such topics as Communication, Careers, Bullying, Kindness, and more.

    Small groups- Counselors work with small groups of students practicing skills like social skills, leadership, building healthy relationships, anxiety, self-esteem, self-regulation, etc.

    Individual Counseling - Counselors work individually with students using short-term, solution-focused individual counseling. For students who benefit from long-term counseling, referrals can be made to community resources.

    If you think that your student would benefit from one of these options, please don't hesitate to reach out.
