Psychological Resources for Students, Parents, Guardians, Faculty and Staff


As we know, growing up in an increasingly complex and fragmented world is not easy. The counselors are available to meet with students to sort through the multitude of issues accompanying adolescence. We offer support in a safe, confidential space where consultation, counseling and short-term therapy are offered by drop-in or scheduled appointments. At times, we consult with faculty, staff, and parents. Among the services we offer, we are also available to provide presentations at LWHS Parents Association meetings.

Peer Counseling Program

The Peer Counseling Program is an opportunity for students to learn active and empathic listening skills as they become an important support system for each other and ambassadors of good listening for the community. This is a voluntary program taught, facilitated, and supervised by the Counseling Department. Students report that learning these skills makes them better friends, have more self understanding and empathy for others. The mainstay philosophy for the program is marked by encouraging self awareness, being empathic, and non-judgmental.
