Mrs. Kaitlyn McAndrew,

Guidance Counselor

Welcome to Counseling with Mrs. McAndrew!

My role as a counselor is to provide students and staff at St. Bartholomew School with extra support outside of the classroom.

As a counselor, I meet with students individually on an as-needed basis. There are a variety of problems that children face during their school careers. Here are some of the topics that may be addressed during counseling this year:

  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Anger Management
  • ADHD and Attention Issues
  • Self-Esteem/Confidence
  • Decision-Making Skills and Impulsivity
  • Communication Skills
  • Positive Relationships with Peers
  • Emotional Language Skills
  • Behavior Modification
  • Bullying
  • Any Special Needs in the Classroom

Counseling is most effective when the parent/guardian is involved! I would love to hear from you about any concerns or input you have about your child! Currently, email is the best way to reach me - kmcandrew@stbartseb.com

As a school counselor, a big part of my job is to ensure the safety and security of your children. It is my legal responsibility to report to you and the proper authorities if a child reports that they are going to hurt themselves, hurt someone else, or someone is hurting them.
