Individual Counseling
Students can see the counselor and work with her for a variety of reasons including anxiety, organization, study skills, friendship problems, coping with stress, self-control, grief and loss, and issues related to self-esteem and divorce/separation.

Small Groups
Small group counseling is provided based upon the needs of the students. The counselor will assess these needs based upon referrals throughout the school year. Topics for small groups might include study skills, anger management, and social skills.

Classroom Counseling Lessons
The counselors teach lessons in Kindergarten every week, 1st-2nd grades every other week, 3rd-5th grades once a month and as needed. Some topics include listening skills, friendship, feelings, social skills, safety, and character traits.
