How the Counseling Center Assists Families:

Families can contact the Counseling Center for information about services offered. Detailed information about Counseling Center Services is also on the Counseling Services page. Families can also contact us to request referrals and resources. 

We are not able to talk with families in any way about their student's participation in counseling without the written consent of release of information from the student. Confidentiality is a very important part of the counseling relationship we establish with students.
