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.
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.
