Contacting your School Counselor:

There may be times where you may have questions or would like to speak with me for additional support. I will have designated office hours. During these times I will be available to respond within an appropriate time frame. I will only be available during appointments so that I can better serve you. Please complete the Counselor Request Form to request an appointment. Responses to appointment request will be sent to your email accounts.

****IMPORTANT****

If you or someone you know is in immediate danger, (i.e., self-harming, experiencing any form of abuse (physical, sexual, emotional, etc.), or having thoughts of suicide), please speak with ANY adult or dial 911 IMMEDIATELY instead of filling out a counselor request form.
