Tips for Parents

Taking Care of Them-

Taking Care of You-

Helping Your Child Make an Appointment

We ask that our students schedule their appointments with our office but we understand how this may be difficult for some students. We encourage you, the parent, to make every effort to engage your child in conversation and assist them in seeking out our services. Your willingness to listen to his or her feelings and thoughts without judgment may very well be the encouragement your child needs to address the problem.

Students can walk into our office Monday-Friday from 8am-5pm and schedule an appointment to meet with a counselor. They can call our office or go online to schedule an appointment too. If your child reports that they are in crisis let them know they can walk in to our office where they will have the opportunity to meet with a counselor the same day.
