Middle Upper School Counselor (7-12)

The Middle Upper School Counselor provides additional support to a diverse school population through individual, group, and/or family counseling or consultation. The counselor is available to help students deal with personal crises or day-to-day classroom difficulties. This service is available to help students cope with difficulties that might interfere with their learning, rather than long-term therapy. For students needs beyond the scope of counseling available at Briarwood, referrals to other service providers may be given.
