Services:

Classroom Lessons: We teach social/emotional and academic skills lessons in every classroom regularly throughout the year. Topics include: social skills, bullying prevention, calming stategies, skills for learning (focusing, listening), personal safety, career readiness, 5th grade transition to middle school, and much more!

Small Groups: Parents or teachers can refer students for small group skills work. Small groups meet for 30 minutes per week, for about 8 weeks. Topics vary but may include: family change, emotional regulation, growth mindset, executive functioning skills, or friendship skills. Small groups begin in October.

Individual Skills Work: We meet with students one-on-one for a variety of reasons. Parents or teachers can refer students or students can ask to see their counselor on their own. Individual sessions might focus on worries, family change, making positive choices at school, or peer conflict. Our individual work with students is not therapy but it is confidential.  It is brief and solution-focused.
