How does a student see the school counselor?
- appointment made by the counselor
- self referral
- parent referral
- administrative referral
- teacher and other staff referral
- drop in
There are times during the school year when a student may benefit from visiting the school counselor. This may include a variety of topics such as: friendship problems, conflict resolution, school anxiety, and coping skills. Sometimes children just have a bad day and my job is to help each child be successful in school. I will make an effort to contact the parent/guardian if it seems as though I am continuously seeing a student for the same reason multiple times.
