The role of the school counselor is to support all students in establishing positive social skills, problem solving and conflict resolution, recognizing their own feelings and behaviors, effectively using coping skills, demonstrating empathy and compassion, and personal self-growth. In order to meet the needs of our Rockwell students, I support them in a variety of different ways:
Individual Student Check Ins:
Students may request to see me or may be referred by a teacher or parent. Unlike outside therapy, student check-ins are usually brief and solution focused.
I offer small group counseling for students who need extra support. Sample group topics may include making friends, divorce, building social skills, anxiety, self-esteem and growth mindset. Students are referred to groups by teachers or guardians.
I work with families to connect them with resources within our school and community. I can also consult with families on how to best support their student within the school setting.
To learn more about opportunities that may be available for your family, please complete the Rockwell Family Resource Survey
For a list of community resources, please visit the Lake Washington School District website’s Community Resources page.
All students receive social-emotional learning (SEL) lessons that I teach in the classrooms. The counselor lessons include topics such as problem solving, empathy, emotion management and bullying prevention.
If you would like me to check in with your child or would like more information regarding groups, lessons or resources, feel free to email me at email@example.com
