• Small Groups

    Small groups are offered to provide additional services and interventions for students who have common needs or concerns. Small groups are an enjoyable way for students to support one another while gaining confidence, skills to succeed in school, building relationships, and personal growth. Group topics depend on the needs of the students. Small groups are short in duration, usually are completed in 5 - 6 sessions. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Ms. Sturgill at 537-7621.
     
    Possible small group topics may include:
    • school success
    • managing emotions
    • building self-esteem
    • friendship
    • social skills
    • grief and loss
    • anxiety
     
    Individual Counseling 
     
     Students can be referred for individual counseling by parents or guardians and staff. They may also self-refer. Individual counseling is short term and is not a replacement for therapy. Individual counseling can support students by helping them to problem solve, resolve conflicts, by providing a safe environment to share thoughts and feelings, and by being a supportive and accepting listener.
