Who is my counselor? AHS does not assign students to specific counselors. Andrew, Beth, and Meredith are happy to work with all students and families regardless of the type of assistance needed.

TRIO programs, coordinated by Andrea Gonzalez, require an application. See Andrea or visit the Counseling Department for more information on how to apply.

Jo Wolfe, Clatsop Behavioral Healthcare (CBH) Therapist, is available by appointment only. Please talk with Andrew, Beth, or Meredith for a referral or call CBH directly at 503-325-5722 to schedule an initial assessment.
