School Counseling is a short-term service delivered to individuals or groups to help students function more effectively in the classroom and with their peers. The relationship between a student and their counselor carries communication privileges and rights to confidentiality. Any information shared by your student will be kept confidential. There are times when students divulge information that I feel should be shared with parents. I will encourage them to do so or request permission to discuss the matter with a parent or guardian myself. I will do this anytime I feel it is in the best interest of your student. There are also several situations in which I am required by law to share details of a counseling session with the appropriate authorities.
