Counseling Team

Girls go through so many changes physically, cognitively, and emotionally during their educational journeys. The counseling program aims to assist our girls with the challenges and opportunities each stage of development brings. We do this by helping each girl understand herself and the changes going on within and around her. Our goal is to help each girl reach her individual potential and equip her to be successful personally, academically, and professionally in the future. The counseling team provides student support services through one-on-one interactions, group discussions, lessons in a classroom and supplemental programming during free class periods. Common topics include the following:

  • Identifying personal needs
  • Effective communication
  • Recognizing and cultivating healthy relationships
  • Empathy training
  • Conflict resolution
  • Managing anxious thoughts and stress management
  • Time management 
  • Mindfulness
  • Self-esteem, self-awareness, and self-compassion
  • Finding your voice
  • Substance prevention 
  • Emotional intelligence and well-being
