Each year the students at Conestoga and Martic have the opportunity to take part in individual counseling based on parent, teacher, or self-referral needs. Referrals can be made any time throughout the school year.
Although the list is often endless, students may come to see me for an individual appointment due to:
- Friendship problems
- New situations
- Difficult decisions
- Academic concerns
- Family issues
- Death or serious illness
I try to schedule individual appointments during lunch or recess in order to best accommodate the students’ busy academic schedules.
Most students will see me for 2-3 times in order to address any concerns they may be having, although some students may need to see me for a longer duration. If I feel that students need support beyond the scope of typical school counseling services, I will be in touch with parents to discuss outside therapy possibilities.
