Welcome to the REC's Counselor’s Corner! I am the School Counselor at Rayen Early College and Rayen Early College Intermediate School. I enjoy working with your children and seeing them grow and learn. School counselors used to be called "guidance counselors." However, we are so much more than that! Here is the difference.


What are school counselors?

School counselors help promote the academic, personal, social, and emotional development of the students. Ideally, the main focus of the school counselor is prevention work. I work with all students to help them develop basic life skills and help them have a successful school year. Some of the services provided by the school counselors are listed below:

Individual Counseling
Individual counseling is a one-on-one meeting with a student to discuss a problem or concern in a confidential setting. The focus is on development of coping and strategy building. Clinical therapy is not a service provided by school counselors. Please feel free to contact me if you would like a list of outside counseling centers. 

Small Group Counseling
Small groups provide a wonderful way for students to meet new friends and develop positive coping skills in a safe and fun environment. Groups are offered on a needs basis and meet weekly for about six to eight sessions.

Classroom Guidance
Throughout the year, the counselor visits classrooms and teaches lessons that are developmentally appropriate and preventative in nature. These lessons often focus on helping students build good character. Some classroom guidance lessons that we have provided for students include but are not limited to kindness, resilience, perspective building, study skills, and responsibility.

Academic Advisement and Assistance
School counselors assist students in evaluating interests, abilities, skills and achievement. They also help with advisement, assisting students in goal setting and making academic choices based on academic, career and social/emotional data.

Crisis Counseling
 School counselors provide support, assistance, and referrals to students and families as they navigate crisis and emergency situations. Please let us know if you or your child is in need of these services.
