Social and Emotional Wellness


The counseling office is a relaxed and comfortable atmosphere where students can find support with emotional and social challenges. School Counselor Carol DiFalco, LCMH addresses issues that are beyond the scope of the classroom teacher or advisor. Students are welcome to schedule a time to talk or stop by on a drop-in basis.
 
The school counseling office provides resources for students and families on emotional and social developmental needs. At the parents' request, the school counseling office can assist with referrals, and as needed, collaboration with mental health providers.
 
Monthly parent discussion groups are offered by the school counselor, addressing various topics relevant to adolescent social and emotional development. Location and times vary to accommodate parents' schedules. Please refer to the school calendar for upcoming meetings.
