School counseling vs. Outside therapist
Is a school counseling session with the school counselor the same as with an outside therapist?
Answer: No. School Counselors meet with students on an individual basis to deal with crisis management and problems solving. An outside therapist will provide more intensive, individualized, and ongoing therapy. School Counseling conversations are confidential between the counselor and student unless there is a safety concern to break that confidentiality.
