About Our School Counselors

"The professional school counselor is a certified/licensed educator trained in school counseling with unique qualifications and skills to address all students’ academic, personal/social, and career development needs. Professional school counselors implement a comprehensive school counseling program that promotes and enhances student achievement.” (ASCA, The Role of the Professional School Counselor)

Your School Counselor may be able to help you discover options for your future.  We really care about all of our students and will try to help students sort things out.  We help students through all kinds of situations, offering genuine concern, informational resources, connections to organizations, and sometimes just someone you can trust and talk with.

School Counselors, Privacy, & Confidentiality 

Counselors respect the privacy of information, always considering actions in terms of rights, integrity, and the welfare of students. Counselors are obligated by law and by ethical standards to report and refer a case when a person’s welfare is in jeopardy. It is a counselor’s duty to inform an individual of the conditions and limitations under which assistance may be provided. These conditions include harm to self, harm to others, or harm by others.  We want to help the student in jeopardy connect with people who are experts in dealing with those complex situations.
