Making a Referral to See the School Counselor

    Click one of the buttons below to refer a student to the school counselor:


    Thank you for reaching out to your school counselor.  I will receive an email with your request and will check in with the student on my next available day at the school to provide counseling support. Thank you again for your patience and understanding and be aware that I do not check or respond to emails or Dojo messages except during school hours. If this is a crisis or emergency call 911 or go to your local emergency room. 

    School Counselors differ from mental health counselors in that we provide systemic support through multidimensional intervention. School counselors provide individual, group, and classroom counseling sessions as short-term and solution-focused. Mental Health Counselors provide individual counseling sessions and function as long-term therapy. Our counselors can refer and help you with seeking mental health services if needed.

    Confidentiality- Information students share with the school counselors is confidential. The student’s right to privacy is guarded as much as permitted by law, ethics, and school policy. The school counselor is obligated to break confidentiality when there is potential harm to the student or others, concern of neglect or abuse, or a court of law that requires testimony or student records.

    At times, the counselors and school-based staff (teacher, social worker, principal, etc.) will need to exchange information about your child (how they are coping in class, strategies to help, etc.) All communication will take place only on a need-to-know basis.

    E-mail transmissions may contain confidential health information that is privileged and legally protected from disclosure by the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA). This information is intended only for the use of the individual or entity named in the email. If you are not the intended recipient, you are hereby notified that reading, disseminating, disclosing, distributing, copying, acting upon or otherwise using the information contained in this e-mail is strictly prohibited.
