Counseling

Find support, tools, and inspiration to create a better world within ourselves and with each other.

Welcome

The Counseling Department is here to offer students nonjudgmental support in negotiating the varied aspects of teen life and student experience here at LWHS. The counselor is a faculty member with time dedicated for students to utilize for supportive conversation, problem solving, and help with coping skills. All students on campus are welcome to speak with the the LWHS counselor if they desire.

While the counselor is trained and licensed as a therapist, LWHS doesn’t offer ongoing psychotherapy on campus. This means that the counselor will not diagnose or offer treatment for any specific mental health disorders.

The counselor is available to help students and families figure out whether or not they need or want therapy, as well as what kind of therapy might be a good fit. The department prioritizes maintaining an up to date network in order to help students and families find a therapist, agency, or program that most fully meets their needs.
