How do I make an appointment to see the counselor?

As a parent, you can call or email to make an appointment to see the counselor. Possible reasons for contacting the counselor include:

Behavior problems at home

Failing grades

Changes lending to personal struggles, i.e., divorce, move, personal tragedy, etc.

Struggles with a teacher

Anxiety or depression in your child


As a student, you may ask your teacher to come and meet with me, or come in before/after school or at lunch. You may also email me and I will respond shortly. There are many reasons you may need additional support, and no topic is off limits. Everything is confidential except for the limitations provided by law, for example 1. If you are a danger to yourself or someone else 2. Child abuse/neglect is suspected or 3. In cases with a court order. Confidentiality will be held in all other instances. If you have questions about this please do not hesitate to ask.
