School Counselor

What does a middle school counselor do?

Middle school is an exciting yet challenging time for students, their parents, and teachers. Middle school students face unique and diverse personal and developmental challenges that have an impact on academic achievement. On top of facing these challenges of middle school, we are also adding in the challenges of our new post COVID world. There is a lot going on for all of us! I am here to help your student through these challenges.

As a middle school counselor, I collaborate with students, parents, teachers, administrators, and the community to strengthen learning. I can help provide:

  • Academic skills support including organizational, study, and test-taking skills

  • Career awareness, exploration, and planning

  • Goal setting

  • Education in understanding strengths and weaknesses of self and others

  • Coping strategies including dealing with failure and success

  • Developing communication, problem-solving, and decision-making skills

  • Building and maintaining positive relationships with peers and adults

  • Conflict resolution and peer mediation

  • Adjusting to change and transitions

  • Mindfulness strategies

  • Responsive Services including counseling and referrals to meet immediate needs of students

  • Individual and small group counseling

  • Individual/family/school crisis intervention
