Parents, teachers, and students themselves may request individual brief counseling. Individual brief counseling is a short-term service that promotes problem-solving and skill development as opposed to ongoing mental health therapeutic support. Recommendations for therapeutic community resources can be made if you feel your student needs more intensive support.
Group Counseling and Skill Development Groups
Group counseling is offered to help groups of students experiencing similar struggles or difficulties, such as loss of a loved one, making or maintaining friendships, finding academic success, etc. These groups allow students to support each other while also building skills to overcome their current struggle. Group sessions are offered at various times throughout the school year based on student need.
School counseling curriculum lessons are offered monthly to students at each grade level in the middle school. These lessons aim to provide students with skills necessary for academic, career, and social/emotional development. Parts of the curriculum consist of stand-alone lessons that are implemented by the school counselor while others are integrated into our school's Advisory Program and curriculum of other content areas in collaboration with the respective content teachers.
