Individual Counseling

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.
