"A Few Quick Questions"
What do students talk to you about?
the past few years I have worked with students on a wide range of
topics. I have helped students with study skills, organization, and goal
setting. Other issues I've help students with have included peers
issues, family troubles, and working through difficult social
situations. Some students have come to me with problems involving drugs
and alcohol and together we have worked on getting them the help they
need. Lastly, students have come to me with emotional issues such as
feeling depressed or dealing with high levels of anxiety. Whatever the
issue may be I feel confident I can help a student, or point them in the
right direction to get help.
Don't you have to tell my parents about what we talk about?
students meet with me what we talk about stays confidential. This means
I cannot tell anyone about what we talk about without your permission. I
cannot discuss what we talk about with your parents, your teachers,
your counselor, or the principals. The only time I must break
confidentiality is if a student give me permission to share what we
discussed in counseling, when the student may be in a dangerous
situation (plans of suicide, student is being abused, student is a
danger to self or others), or if I were to be legally obligated in a
court of law.
