Ticasuk Brown Elementary Counselor Page
Julie O'Brien Christine Cook
Welcome! The Ticasuk Brown School Counseling program is available to all students. Our school has two counselors who share the position: Julia O’brien will primarily be on site Monday and Tuesday and Christine Cook will be on site Thursday and Friday; they will share Wednesday duties. Mrs. O’brien has been the school counselor since 2010 and Mrs. Cook comes to us from Arctic Light Elementary. They work with students individually, in small groups, and through classroom/school wide activities. They work with students, staff, and families to promote a culture of positivity, respect, and responsibility.
School counselors are not able to provide therapeutic counseling services to students in school, but do work with students and families in challenging times, providing a safe place in the school and communicating/coordinating with other staff as needed. School counselors 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 problems they might be having, whether academic or social/emotional.
