• Welcome to the School Counselor's Hive   


    Individual and Small Group Counseling Services

    Does your child need to meet with the school counselor?  Individual and Small Group Counseling are an important component of the comprehensive developmental guidance program at Satchel Ford Elementary. Individual counseling is short-term counseling, which is available to ALL students who are experiencing negative feelings such as worry, sadness, fear, disappointment, anger, loneliness, or frustration or for those who just need a listening ear.  Small group counseling services are also available for those students with similar issues/concerns and will provide much needed support.   Ms. Johnson will meet with individual students and small groups to improve their social skills, discuss feelings, and provide them with the skills necessary for problem solving.  All discussions are confidential.
