Counseling and College Advising
Saint Joe Counselors provide individual and small group counseling; crisis intervention; peer relationships and effective social skills development; problem-solving, decision-making, and conflict resolution; coping strategies; substance abuse education and intervention; multicultural/diversity awareness; resource referrals; and advocacy for students.
Additionally, counselors collaborate with students, parents, teachers, administrators, and the community to ensure students receive appropriate academic planning. This planning includes goal-setting and decision-making in developing four-year plans as freshmen; post-secondary planning and application process via in-classroom presentations as well as individualized planning; education in self-assessment (learning how to identify strengths and weaknesses); college exploration and career awareness; understanding of organizational, study, and test-taking skills; and development of resumes.
We love working with our families! Please do not hesitate to reach out to us with any questions.
