For individual counseling, a student can be referred by their parent, teacher, or administrator. Students also request to see me. Students come to my office to talk about things that impact their learning at school, such as friendship skills, study skills, and self-esteem. In my office, students can feel free to talk about what worries them and to ask questions.
For small group counseling, students are sometimes referred by their teacher or administrator when patterns in behavior have been observed and there is a need for counseling in a group with other children who are struggling with similar issues or working on similar goals. In such situations, parents will receive a permission form informing them about topics to be covered and goals of the group. Parents have the option of allowing their child to participate or declining the invitation to the small group.
