The Nordale School Counseling program is available to all students. Our school counselor is Lynn Harrison, "Ms. Lynn" (to the kids). This is her 6th year at Nordale and her 22nd in the district. She works with students individually, in small groups, and through classroom/school-wide activities. She works with students, staff, and families to promote a culture of positivity, respect, and responsibility.
She is not able to provide therapeutic counseling services to students in school, but does work with students and families in times of challenge or crisis, providing a caring place in the school and communicating/coordinating with other staff, as needed. She can also help connect families with district and community resources.
The school counselor’s office is a safe place for students to come when they need help working through challenges/difficulties they encounter, whether academic or social/emotional.
