    Group Counseling

    Small counseling groups are offered based on student needs. These groups typically meet for 6 weekly sessions. The groups usually consist of 3-8 students who may need additional support in a specified area. Some of the groups available this year are listed below. Please let me know if you are interested in having your child become a member in any of the following groups. Also please feel free to let me know about any other need for your child; as other children's needs are presented, it may be possible to form a group based around additional needs.
