Military & Family Life Counselor
We are extremely pleased and fortunate to have a Military and Family Life Counselor at Marrington again this school year. The Military and Family Life Counselor's primary objective is to support service members and their families. They specialize in child and youth behavioral issues, and their services are available at no cost. The counselor will be offering individual and group sessions at Marrington in Room 201. Some of the specific concerns addressed include:
- School Adjustment
- Deployment and Separation
- Reunion Adjustment
- Sibling and Parent-Child Communication
- Behavioral Concerns
- Fear, Grief and Loss
- Daily Life Issues
Their services are confidential with the exception of duty-to-warn situations. In order to receive their services, a consent form must be signed by a parent or guardian. They are not able to work with students who are receiving counseling services outside of school. If you would like to make an appointment with the Military and Family Life Counselor, click here.
