Individual Counseling

Individual counseling is available to all students in need; at the request of the student, parent, or staff member. While students may see us at any time for brief discussions, parental permission is required prior to a series of planned sessions. Students are able to express concerns in a safe environment, where problem solving can then take place.

Group Counseling

Small Group Counseling is available to all students in need; at the request of the student, parent, or staff member. Parental permission is required. Groups are designed so that students may gather together in a comfortable setting to work through an issue that is preventing them from doing their best in school. They have the opportunity to interact and connect with peers, practice new skills, provide and receive feedback, and set goals as needed.

Group Topics May Include:

  • Study Skills
  • Problem Solving
