Hello, MWHS Students and Families!

At Magnolia West, you are more than just students to us. You are valuable people with full lives outside of the classroom. Sometimes those lives are presented with painful challenges and struggles that make it more difficult to come to school and focus on your educational goals. You are not alone. We want you to know we care and we are here to help!   
 
As your Student Support Counselor, I am someone you can come to for counseling and support in times of crisis. I can also assist you with finding resources within the community for a variety of needs you or your family may have.  Here are some examples of concerns I can help you address:
 
Personal or Relationship Issues Community Referrals
Transition and Change Cultural/Diversity Concerns
Stress Management Self-Awareness/Advocacy
Communication Skills Coping Strategies
Grief and Loss Crisis Intervention

 

If you are in crisis, you don't need an appointment. Simply come to the Counseling Office or send me an e-mail requesting that I send for you. Or, your academic counselor or principal may refer you to me.
