School-Based Counseling Services

Liia Rudolph

When your child is struggling it can feel overwhelming. Balancing the responsibilities of your family with work and transportation can add even more stress. When your child also struggles at school, it can be ideal to get help right there, where the challenges occur. Child Guidance can help with these emotional and behavioral difficulties.

WHAT ARE SCHOOL-BASED COUNSELING SERVICES?

One to one, confidential, individual or family counseling with a master’s level therapist offered right in your child’s school, during the school day. Our experienced therapists use a variety of clinically based interventions such as: talk, play, art, family meetings, and other strategies to support your child and you in reaching agreed-upon goals.

THE BENEFITS

  • No challenges with transportation- your child will receive support right at school.
  • Family sessions can be conveniently scheduled as well.
  • We provide consistent collaboration with school staff and teachers.
  • Your child will be a client of Child Guidance Resource Centers and can easily gain access to any of our many clinical services.

HOW CAN I MAKE A REFERRAL?

Getting started with school-based counseling services is easy. Parents, caregivers, or school staff can start the referral process by speaking with any member of the school’s guidance staff. The guidance counselors will help the family complete our simple, confidential referral form. We verify the child’s insurance information and then call the caregivers to schedule the child’s first session at school.
