Welcome to Mrs. Carlisle'sCounseling Corner!As the counselor at MBE, I work with students in whole groups, small groups, and individually.Classroom lessons address academic, career, social, and personal concerns specific to each grade level. Small groups are formed based on student need. The most common small group topics include study skills, social skills, family changes, and grief. I believe there is power in small group counseling because students each bring their own story to the group. Students are able to relate to and learn from one another's experiences in ways that individual or large group formats cannot provide. Individual sessions are conducted as needed. Students may be referred to the counselor by a parent, teacher, or through a self-referral.
