Cohen Elementary School Counseling

 

 

My name is Krissy McNamara and I work in the Cohen Elementary and Cohen Middle Schools as the School Counselor. I am very excited to work with you and your students! If you have any questions or concerns throughout the school year in which I may support your child, please do not hesitate to contact me.

 

If you're unsure about what a counselor does, here are some highlights.

 

What does a School Counselor do?

I can help with:

  • Social Skills and Friendship/Peer Issues
  • Goal setting and decision making
  • Individual and small group counseling
  • Communication, problem-solving, and conflict resolution
  • Transitioning from Elementary to Middle School
  • Personal Problems
  • Crisis Situations
  • Connecting to other resources
  • Referrals to community mental health counseling

 

How does my child get to see the counselor?

  • Teacher, parent, principal, dean, or student request
  • Parents/Guardians - feel free to call (734-7132) or email me kmcnamara@gstboces.org

 

When does my child need to see the counselor?

  • To share good news....
  • When having problems with a friend, home, etc. that may be difficult to cope with
  • When a problem is making it hard to focus in the classroom
  • Academic questions or concerns
