Group Counseling



If you have counseling concerns about your student, please contact me.  A determination will be made regarding the most appropriate counseling approach in order to meet the individual needs of the student. With the permission of the student’s parent or guardian, these groups can provide valuable support for students:

KIDS’ BREAKFAST CLUB (Wednesday Mornings from 7:30-8am)

Kids’ breakfast club is an open, voluntary resiliency support group for Dodd students whom may be going through a change such as divorced/separated parents, a recent move, a new family member addition, a recent death. Research has shown that interventions can improve children’s resilience indicated by improved outcomes following the stress of change. In this group, I utilize evidence-based preventative interventions designed to reduce risk factors, build competencies, and promote resilient outcomes for children of change.


FRIENDSHIP and FOUCS GROUP (Friday Mornings from 7:30-8am)

The activities in this group help to develop skills for students to make and sustain healthy friendships in school. The purpose of this support group is to identify specific friendship / social skills that need to be developed or improved upon in each child and to provide group time to introduce and practice those skills so they can be transferred to other settings. Friendship skills can vary dramatically from child to child. Some friendship issues during the intermediate grades can be shyness, aggressiveness, communication skills, the ability to handle common friendship problems, knowing when to be a leader and when to be a follower, or the ability to deal with peer pressure.
