  • When a student is very sad, confused, shy, angry, or worried
  • When severe changes in a student's behavior occur
  • When a student is having difficulty dealing with family changes or situations
  • When something seems to be bothering a student to the point of distraction or intense anxiety

How a child might see the school counselor

Students can meet with the school counselor in a variety of ways. Most commonly, school counselors work with students through:

One on One Meetings: Student and counselor meet independently to go over any concerns or work on behavior.

Small Groups: Peer groups of 4-6 students meet to work on character development or group issues.

Classroom Guidance: Counselor visits classrooms to talk with students about a variety of topics.
