How does your child experience school counseling services?
- Individual Counseling- I work with a students in a safe, positive, and confidential setting to address issues that 'get in the way' of' school achievement. Topics are based on the needs of the student and may include: understanding feelings, changing families/divorce, grief, stress, social skills, academics, bullying, problem-solving, and decision-making.
- Small Group Counseling- Throughout the year I will have 2-4 small groups to address similar issues or concerns among students. The small group environment consist of about 3-6 peers. The group sessions usually last about 30 minutes and are held for approximately 6 weeks. Topics are based on the needs of the students and may include divorce or changing families, grief and loss, friendship and social skills, conflict resolution, anger management, self-esteem, and self-control.
- Classroom Counseling lessons- Classroom lessons are regularly scheduled and address personal, social, academic, and career-related needs at the child's developmental level. Topics may include self-esteem, conflict resolution/, anger management, career awareness, respect, friendship/social skills, responsibility, tolerance, teasing/bullying, feelings,and cooperation.
