How Can School Counseling Services Help You
- Individual Counseling- I am available to work with you in a safe, positive, and confidential setting to address issues that "get in the way of" school achievement. Topics are based on your needs and may include: understanding emotions, changing families/divorce, grief, stress, social skills, academics, bullying, problem-solving, and decision-making.
- Small Group Counseling- Students sharing similar issues or concerns may work together in a small group environment consisting of about 3-6 peers. The group sessions usually last about 30 minutes and are held for approximately 6-8 weeks. Topics are based on the needs of the group and may include divorce or changing families, grief and loss, friendship and social skills, study skills, conflict resolution, anger management, self-esteem, and stress-management.
- Classroom Counseling lessons- I may develop and implement classroom curriculum driven by national and county school counseling outcomes. I may co-plan and co-teach lessons with other professionals in the building to support social and emotional growth across curricular areas. Classroom lessons are regularly scheduled and address personal, social, academic, and career-related needs at your developmental level. Topics may include self-esteem, conflict resolution, study skills, anger management, career awareness, relationship/social skills, responsibility, respect, bullying, emotions, cooperation, goal setting/decision-making, and peer pressure.
It is my ethical responsibility to keep information confidential unless someone is hurting you, you want to hurt someone, you want to hurt yourself, or legal requirements demand that confidential information be revealed.
