    The counselor works with students individually and in small groups. Small group counseling sessions may assist students in learning how to cope with issues such as conflict resolution, social skills, anger management, or loss. Students, staff members, or parents may initiate a referral to see the counselor, see the electronic referral form. Note,  working with the school counselor will not be a substitute for outside mental health care. When that is the case, the counselor can often work in conjunction with community professionals.

    Conversations with a counselor are typically confidential with the exception of situations in which the student has authorized the counselor to speak to someone else. In addition, there are a number of special situations that limit confidentiality, including:

    • The threat of harm to oneself

    • The threat of harm to another

    • Any report of abuse or neglect or suspected abuse or neglect

    • Reports or indications of behavior that could reasonably put the individual at risk to harm themself or others

    • Court orders which compel sending records or appearing in court
