Meet the Counselors

TeenPride counselors love working with teens.  They look forward to coming to school each day to talk with the teens about what is going on in their life.  The counselors bring unique  insights to the conversation from experience they have gained counseling teens for many years.  They build a trusted relationship with each student.  They are smart, friendly, patient, understanding and have a sense of humor.  They know how to help during difficult times, and look forward to celebrating each achievement.
