The certified full-time counselor on staff at Widener coordinates and facilitates Individualized Educational Plans, handling attendance concerns and coordinating and supporting mental health initiatives.  The counselor works with students individually and in small groups on a variety of topics including peer pressure, conflict resolution, interpersonal communication skills and coping strategies in order to enhance optimum learning.

The counselor works with our high school age students on clarifying post-high school plans and helping to coordinate community resources that are available to students and their families for transition into positive post-school outcomes.

The counselor meets with parents and staff to assure that all of Widener Memorial School students achieve their maximum potential.
