As licensed school counselors, we are specially trained in providing students with social, emotional, career exploration and academic support. We work with students individually, in small groups, and in the classroom. Professional School Counselors follow the American School Counseling Association Model to provide equitable support services for students. Counseling services can help students feel successful at school, gain valuable life-skills, and reach their personal and academic goals. We would love to connect with you! Please let us know how we can best support your child(ren). For additional information on how Minneapolis School Counselors support Minneapolis Public Schools, please visit the MPS Guidance website.
