Welcome to the 2020-2021 school year! We know that this year will offer its own set of challenges, but know that we are here for you! Let’s not waste any time getting to introductions and roles. Please don’t hesitate to contact any of us if you need assistance. 

As counselors, we are here to support students and families in the areas of:

  • Personal/social – Everyone goes through tough times and needs the support of others. We provide support with managing your emotions and interpersonal skills. This can encompass all aspects of life.

  • Academic – We want to see students maximize your ability to learn. We also want to be sure you are taking courses that meet your needs and your post-high school plans.

  • Career – Jobs are an essential part of life. We have lots of resources to help you prepare for a job whether that’s while you’re in high school, right after high school, or after college.
