Welcome to the Virtual Counseling Center!
My name is Julie Garabedian (a.k.a. Mrs. G) and I am looking forward to working with you and your family! As the District counselor, I am grateful to work with each of the school communities in the Pleasant Ridge District serving all students in grades TK-8.
I address the social, emotional, academic and career development of all students in the District. By using a multi-tiered system of support, I provide classroom lessons on social-emotional learning and coping skills, small group counseling on various topics and individual and crisis counseling. I advocate for all students to support their academic success and emotional well-being.
I am available to meet in person or virtually. To complete an appointment request form, click on the following links:
