How do School Counselors Help Students?


Individual Counseling 
Counseling is developmental in nature and is designed to help students develop an understanding of themselves or others, define goals, and resolve conflict.  

Group Counseling 
Sometimes students who share a common concern find it helpful to meet together to share ideas and support one another. Possible group topics are Anger Management, Divorce, Grief, Healthy Choices, Organizational Skills, and Stress Management. 

Classroom Guidance
Classroom Guidance lessons  are designed to help students become more successful and get along in the classroom.  We offer guidance lessons on a variety of topics throughout the school year.
