    An easy way to describe your school counselor is "problem solver."  In our schools, students are faced with many academic, social/emotional and career related issues that your school counselor will do his/her best to assist with.  With this in mind, it is very important to recognize that your counselor is like anyone else in the respect we all have specific strengths.  Some school counselors have training/experience in mental health (treating people for depression, anxiety etc.) while many school counselors do not.  Largely, counselors who work in schools assist students primarily with issues and problems related to improving academic success, social skills and career planning.  For many folks, the work of the “school counselor” has been somewhat of a secret!
