________________________________________________________________________

When will my child see the counselor?
There will be opportunities for them to see the counselor in classroom guidance lessons, small group guidance upon referral, and individual counseling sessions. Students can be referred to me by their teacher, a parent, or even self-referrals when they need to talk about issues bothering them or help solving a problem.
