  • "A Few Quick Questions"

    What do students talk to you about?

    Over 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?

    When 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.
