Why would I see a School Counselor?

"I had an argument with my best friend and she doesn't want to be my friend anymore."

"Some kids in my science class are talking about fighting after school."

 "My parents got a divorce and I don't know what to do."

 "My grandfather is real sick and I'm scared he's going to die."

 "My mom just had a baby and she doesn't have time for me anymore."

 "We're moving again!"

 "My dad wants me to be an engineer like him, but I want to be a pilot."

 "This my son's third school and he's having difficulty adjusting."

 "My husband is being deployed in two weeks and Carolyn may need some help coping with this change."

 "Sam used to be excited about school, but lately he doesn't seem to care."

 "My wife and I recently separated and our daughter could use some help understanding this."

 "My son seems to be the target of some teasing and bullying at the bus stop. Can you help?"

 "My wife just lost her job and we are having a hard time affording food, school supplies, and clothes."
