Counseling

Welcome to Coyote Willow Family School!

 

I am Cheryl Benedetto, your school counselor.  I’m looking forward to our first year at Coyote Willow Family School and making this a great year!

 

A little background information about myself:  I have a master’s degree in counseling from Webster University.  I am a Licensed School Counselor and a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor.  I am a National Board Certified Counselor and a registered Play Therapist Supervisor with the Association for Play Therapy along with holding a certificate in Sandtray Therapy.  I have worked in the counseling field for sixteen years.

 

I will be working towards developing a comprehensive and developmentally appropriate school counseling program to help all students, parents, teachers and community to ensure students achieve academic success.  This will be accomplished by focusing on academics/education, career, and personal/social aspects.

 

What I plan to make available to implement the counseling program:

 

For Parents

  • Consultation for student academics, social/emotional concerns, career exploration
  • Support with parent/teacher conferences
  • Referral assistance to community resources

For Teachers

  • Academic, person/social, career collaboration and support for each student.
  • Support during conferences
  • Class guidance activities

For Students

  • Academic planning/support (understanding individual barriers to learning, goal setting, organization/study/test taking skills, high school exploration etc.)
  • Career exploration/education
  • College exploration
  • Crisis intervention
  • Peer education/support (communication, problem solving, conflict resolution, understanding self and others)
  • Individual/ small group counseling (personal/social/behavioral, academic, career)
