ADJUSTMENT COUNSELING

WHAT DOES A SCHOOL ADJUSTMENT COUNSELOR DO?

School Adjustment Counselors at GCVS promote the culture of wellness. We work with students and families individually as well as in small groups, and teach classroom lessons on social emotional learning and executive functioning. In short -- an adjustment counselor is a school-based therapist that has a unique academic perspective. Together we can learn tools and build skills to manage a variety of mental health and cognitive issues that may impact your academic performance and well-being.
