What is a School Counselor?

So what do School Counselors do?

As a School Counselor, I blessed to be able to work with ALL students in 3 primary areas: academic achievement, career, and social/emotional development. I work hard to improve student success in ALL students by implementing a comprehensive school counseling program. My goal as a School Counselor is to help ensure that today's students feel safe, cared for, and become productive, well -adjusted individuals.

As a School Counselor, I teach students various academic and life skills such as how to communicate effectively, organizational skills, study skills, etc. through classroom lessons. I help students explore different careers based on their discovery of their personal interests.I support students' social emotional needs individual (1-on-1) counseling, group counseling, and crisis intervention. 

  • When School Counselors speak to students they are verbally given the rules of confidentiality.
    • "Whatever you say in here stays in here"
    • UNLESS you mention that
    • Someone is hurting you
    • You are going to hurt someone
    • ​You are going to hurt yourself
While it is the School counselors ethical and legal responsibility to uphold confidentiality to the student we recognize and balance that obligation with an understanding of the family or guardians' legal and inherent rights to be the guiding voice in their children's lives.

*Please note school counselors do not provide “therapy” or “traditional counseling”.
