Welcome to Mrs. Taylor's Counseling Website! I am the school counselor at both Luther Elementary and Luther Middle School. I have the joy of working with students through classroom guidance lessons, small group counseling, and individual counseling. I also collaborate with school staff, parents, and members of the community in order to meet the needs of students.
Classroom Guidance Lessons
I visit each classroom multiple times throughout the school year and have the chance to interact with every student during these lessons. Lessons typically last 40 minutes in length and cover topics such as school readiness skills, understanding feelings of self and others, problem solving skills, coping skills, friendship skills, and study skills.
Small Group Counseling
A variety of small groups are offered to students who may benefit from spending some extra time developing academic, social, or emotional skills along with their peers, and to students who are coping with similar life situations. Groups can have anywhere from 3-12 members and usually meet once a week for 6-8 weeks.
Some students can benefit from one-on-one counseling regarding academic, social, or emotional challenges. I use brief solution counseling strategies to help students. For students that may need more long term assistance, I am happy to make a referral for counseling services.
