Individual Counseling

Students may receive individual counseling. Students may be referred by the parents/guardians, faculty, administration or by the student themselves.

The contents of the counseling sessions are kept confidential.

The exceptions to this rule are: 

1.) If a student wishes me to share certain items with parents or teachers.
2.) If the student is in danger.
3.) If counselor is compelled to share information with a court of law.

Communicating with parents is a very important part of our jobs.  We encourage as much communication as possible but balance that with the students ability to share sensitive information in a safe environment.

It is very important that the students know that they can trust the counselor. Therefore we must decline to share confidential student information derived from a counseling session with the parents or anyone else unless we have the student's permission to do so.
