Ms. Latrieva Wilson
Our school counselors are Latrieva Wilson and Sarah Griffin. Professional school counselors are uniquely qualified to address the developmental needs of all students. School counselors deliver a comprehensive School Counseling program encouraging all students’ academic, career and social emotional development.
The counselors primarily deliver short-term, solution focused services through individual or small group counseling and through classroom guidance, either in the Enhancement rotation or monthly classroom visits to address things like social skills, self control, coping skills and self confidence. If longer-term individual counseling services are needed, the counselors can provide families with a list of community agencies and assist them with making contact or navigating the referral process.
School Counselors adhere to the ethical standards of the American School Counselor Association and the North Carolina School Counseling Association. Counselors also maintain confidentiality. However, there are limits to confidentiality, which include situations where there is risk of danger. If there is suspicion that the student could harm him or herself, is in danger of being abused or neglected, or could be of risk to others, the counselor is legally and ethically bound to report.
To request service: Appointments can be requested by writing a note, calling, emailing or stopping by the counseling office. School counselors also have an electronic referral form available on their websites. Students may decide self refer and there is a station for this inside of our office area. Often, referrals are made by teachers, parents, principals, or occasionally, even concerned friends.
For further information on the counseling program, counseling materials, community resources, or procedures by which a parent may limit a student's participation in the counseling program, please contact Ms. Wilson or Ms. Griffin.
