Counseling Program

Guidance Counselor: Jamie Lawalin

 

A school counselor…

  • works with all students to encourage a safe school climate.
  • delivers classroom lessons
  • facilitates small groups
  • meets individually with students to do brief, solution-focused counseling, NOT long-term mental health counseling/therapy.
  • helps students who are struggling to make positive behavior choices
  • maintains confidentiality of students and their families unless there is a need to know or a safety concern.

 

 

Content Covered in Classroom Guidance Classes:

  • Social Skills/7 Habits
  • Health/Wellness
  • Consumerism
  • Careers
  • Bullying

Individual and Group Work:

Groups and individual sessions are all voluntary and offered to all students. These services are provided for your child so he/she can have the opportunity to address concerns so they do not get in the way of learning. All counseling is confidential except if it is in the child’s best interest for me to disclose to the proper authorities, such as in the case of abuse or endangerment. I am happy to discuss general impressions as I work with your child so you may best help him/her at home.

 

Feel free to call me any time you have a concern about your child’s well-being. I will do my best to help you and your child.
