Small Group CounselingNeeds-based groups can be formed on a variety of topics. Small groups usually meet on a weekly/per cycle basis for about 4-8 sessions. Typical topics can include, but not limited to: grief or loss; divorces and separation; and friendship or social skills.
Individual CounselingOn a limited basis, we work with students individually for a number of school related problems such as: difficulty in the classroom, difficulty coming to school or introducing new students. We are also available to meet with students who have recently experienced a crisis. If your child were to need more in-depth counseling, we are available to provide outside referrals.
Parent ConsultationWe are here for parents as well. If you have a concern about your child that might be affecting his or her school performance, please don’t hesitate to call the guidance office. We are here to provide consultation and assistance for parents, as well as for teachers and other school staff.
Classroom GuidanceOn an as needed basis, students may receive a series of classroom guidance lessons. These lessons are developmentally appropriate for each grade level and preventative in nature. Our goal is to promote and enhance student learning by helping students develop self knowledge, coping skills, effective communication skills and creative problem solving methods.
Topics covered during classroom guidance help teach students about feelings, friendship, anger management, diversity, personal safety, preventing bullying and conflict resolution.
