  • The Couneling Office is located across from the Main Office and serves as a resource for all Richmond Middle School students and their parents. 
  • Counselors are happy to facilitate meetings and discuss individual supports for students.
  • Liz Powers works primarily with students whose last names begin with the letters A-K. John LaCrosse works primarily with students whose last names begin with L-Z.
  • School Counselors work with all sixth, seventh, and eighth grade students.
  • Students take Guidance class for one quarter each year. 
  • School  Counselors meet with classroom teachers and administrators through team meetings at least once a week, and serve as professional leaders who share opinions, suggestions, information, and directions as they may relate to students, staff, and programs.
  • School Counselors are involved in all levels of student support, including class advisement, academic support, social/emotional guidance, and career development. School Counselors provide counseling services which assist in the development of the student as a total person.


David Drazin also works in conjunction with the counseling office as a part time School Psychologist.
