New This Year from our Counselor

This year, I am offering 20 minute check-ins for students who need a one-on-one check in for any reason, especially if your student is struggling with grief/loss, emotional issues, friendship issues, or just having a hard time and needs support. To prepare myself if there is a lot of need, I will start by offering six meetings, then we can assess needs after that time. I am also hoping to run groups for students based on need.
