What does a School Counselor Provides?
I provide Foothill Elementary with a comprehensive school counseling program. This program is built to help ALL students, in all grade levels, who attend Foothill Elementary. My services include:
individual counseling, peer counseling, group counseling, classroom lessons, crisis intervention, building school wide programs, staff and family support, and much more.
Anything that involves the well-being of the students, staff, and families of the Foothill Family, I am there to help. My number one priority is keeping our students safe. One thing to note is that when I talk with your child or student it is confidential, unless:
1. someone is hurting you
2. you want to hurt someone
3. you want to hurt yourself.
So if one of these areas comes up in the student's conversation then parents, teachers, administration, Child Protective Services, and sometimes local police department will be notified. My services follows the ASCA National Standards.
