I will be starting small groups counseling soon. The group will be an opportunity for your student to learn various skills and discuss shared concerns with other children. These groups will meet once a week for 30 minutes during the school day (mostly during lunch). The groups will meet for 6 to 8 sessions. These sessions may not be in consecutive weeks, due to field trips, holidays, etc
