Developed with flexibility in mind, our program can be tailored to accommodate any level of access to technology, fit individual family schedules, and work within your school/district scheduling and financial needs.

  • Customizable: program length and duration can be customized to your school/district needs.

Counseling & Family Engagement

Students and families are facing more uncertainty than ever and may need additional support. Whether you have counselors on staff or not, we understand your school(s) may not be able to meet these demands alone.

Our credentialed, master’s level counselors can provide counseling to help students who need extra support for behavioral, academic, social and emotional challenges. Live, one-on-one counseling can be provided by phone, phone app, computer, or any technology available to the student.

Our virtual support extends beyond students. We work to foster strong relationships and strengthen the ability of families to support the academic and non-academic needs of their children. Services include:

  • Consultations: phone or video check-ins and consultations with families, teachers, and school staff to provide additional support during school closures
  • Referral services:  support families in obtaining assistance related to basic needs, including but not limited to: food assistance, mental health services, social, emotional and physical well-being
  • Parent & Family workshops: equip families with practical and effective strategies and resources to help students achieve success. Workshops are provided virtually and address a wide range of topics including academic, social, and emotional development. Learn more about our Parent & Family workshop offerings.
