Meet Our Mental Health Team

Our mental health staff is a team of master's-level mental health professionals. While our counseling staff is available to support students during the school day, our role is designed to provide short-term responsive, solution-focused counseling for daily challenges our students face in their school days. This is not a replacement for long-term therapy. If you have concerns and are seeking information about mental health services for your student, here are some resources to connect you with outside mental health professionals who may be able to provide more long-term, comprehensive care.

Below are a few frequently accessed community mental health resources available to support you and your student(s).  Click on the organization's name to access its website.
