Individual and Group Counseling

Individual Counseling

At times it may be necessary for a student to meet individually with me in order to address needs, concerns, and/or barriers to success. Issues could include, but are not limited to: friendship, conflict resolution, academic improvement, attendance, grief and loss, divorce, self-esteem, or crisis intervention.

Group Counseling

Small group counseling provides students with assistance to improve skills in the areas of both personal/social and academic development. The ultimate goal of small group counseling is to assist students with developing awareness of interpersonal issues, to develop strategies and skills to positively impact their school achievement and to increase appropriate social interaction skills.
