Personal Counseling

Personal Counseling services (individual and group) are available throughout the school day to provide confidential support for our students and their families. The goal of these services is to promote wellness and to support students in their unique personal development. The counselors address areas of personal concerns by listening, strategizing, and helping students to develop appropriate solutions and coping skills. Counseling Appointment Request forms are available to students on the first floor of the Convent building, for the scheduling of same-day and next-day appointments. The Counselors can also provide referrals to families for outside counseling and community resources.

Group support is offered for these areas:

  • Chronic illness
  • Divorce
  • Family addictions
  • Grief
  • Depression and anxiety
  • Freshmen arriving to Carondelet without peers from their feeder school
