Confidentiality Concerns

A counselor-student relationship must be built on trust and confidentiality. This means that I am bound by ethical codes of the American School Counselor Association (ASCA) to keep conversations between myself and students private. I try my best to keep parents and teachers updated on the progress and relevant information for the betterment of your student. there are times when I may need to break confidentiality and tell appropriate persons. This is when student may be susceptible to:

  • Harm Themselves
  • Harm Others
  • Abuse and/or Neglect

Arrangement for Service

Individual or group counseling services is available to all students. A student or a parent may ask the counselor for help or to work with the student on a matter of interest. Teachers and other school staff may also refer a student for counseling service. Additionally, another student may refer the student for individual or small group counseling.
