Counseling Department


Welcome to Nicolas’ Counseling Department!

As your counselor and mental health specialist, our goal is to support the academic success of all students. We work with students to assist them with academic, career, personal, social, and emotional concerns.  We also work with students and families to support students in any way ranging from behavior concerns, communicating with outside therapists and agencies, and successfully transitioning our students on to high school and beyond. Additionally, the Counseling Department will be offering various groups and presentations throughout the school year.

Students can come by to see us to make an appointment or drop in if we are available.  Parents and guardians, please feel free to call or email if you have any questions, concerns, or would like to set up a time to meet to discuss your student.

Confidentiality Disclaimer:


As professional school counselors and mental health specialists, we take pride in our role within schools and working with students with a variety of concerns, whether it is personal/social, academic, or career related.  It is imperative to provide students a safe, reliable space when they feel they need the additional support. 


It is our responsibility to keep topics/issues discussed with students confidential, unless:

* The student reports that they are hurting themselves or want to hurt themselves
* The student reports someone else is hurting them or has threatened to hurt themselves
* The student reports that they are going to cause harm to another person


Under these circumstances, we make the professional decision to contact the appropriate authorities, including notifying parents/guardians. Should you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact us.
