Role of the Counselors

Need to talk about your classes? Concerned about your grades? Looking for idea on study skills? Need help with time management? Feel stressed and need someone to talk to on campus? As Counselors, we do all that and MORE! We focus on 3 domains: 

1) Academics 2) College/career 3) Social-emotional 


Remember, we are here for YOU.

Confidentiality

As School Counselors, we practice confidentiality. Confidentiality means that what you talk about with your School Counselor, stays with them. Keep in mind that there are exceptions where confidentiality may be breached:

With those exceptions, School Counselors would then involve others to have it addressed in an appropriate and safe manner.
