Individual and Group Counseling

Individual Counseling

Individual Counseling is usually referred by a parent or a teacher. Students may also request to see the counselor.  When students come to see me, they are NEVER in trouble.  We are simply working together to help them solve developmental issues in their life and to have good days at school. 


Group Counseling

The "Sweet Pea Club" is held during the school day for a multi-week period.  We use the Kids Connection curriculum from Rainbow Days Inc.  (Go to www.rdikids.org for more information.)  This is a wonderful curriculum for any student.  We cover topics such as making choices, creating friendships, staying drug free, handling emotions, and goal setting.

“Lunch Break with Sweet Pea” is an informal lunch small group in the counseling room. Every kindergarten student is invited to participate once during the year. It is a time to get to know each other better while eating and playing centers. This is a lunch enjoyed by all.

“Lion C.U.B.S.” (Children Using Better living Skills) is a small group held in cooperation with our Wellness Director, Rhonda Carter. The goal is to assist students in learning healthy eating and exercise habits. Students experience rich activities while making friends and understanding the value of each individual.
