Our Counseling Team is built to both guide students through school toward their academic goals, and to provide mental and emotional support and guidance to anyone in need.


The counseling office is currently staffed with an assistant principal, four counselors, a counseling secretary, and a registrar. The office provides a wide range of services throughout the year, including registration, academic advisement, college, career, personal counseling, record maintenance, testing, and more.

Social Emotional Counselor

(831) 429-3810 ext. 51362


Our Social Emotional Counselor is here to support students’ mental health in order to help them thrive at school. High school can be an especially challenging time for youth as they are taking on more responsibilities and planning for their future lives. We are here to support students in managing the stress that can come with caring for their personal, social, and academic needs.


Students and parents/guardians can either contact their assigned Academic Counselor or our Social Emotional Counselor to make a referral. Once a referral is made, it typically takes 1-2 weeks for our Social Emotional Counselor to check in with the student. However, students are always welcome to drop-in as they need during the school day to meet with our Social Emotional Counselor.


Our Social Emotional Counselor is able to provide the following services based on the needs of students and families:


  • Short-Term Counseling

  • Drop-In Support for Students

  • Consultation for Parents and Guardians

  • Referrals to Community Mental Health Providers


If you have any questions about our counseling services, please contact our Social Emotional Counselor.



Consejería de Salud Mental / Socio-emocional

Nuestro Consejero de Salud Mental/Socio-emocional está aquí para apoyar la salud mental de los estudiantes para ayudarlos a prosperar en la escuela. La escuela secundaria puede ser un momento especialmente difícil para los jóvenes, ya que tienen más responsabilidades y están planeando para su futuro. Estamos aquí para ayudar a los estudiantes a manejar el estrés de cuidar de sus necesidades personales, sociales y académicas.

Los estudiantes y sus padres/guardianes pueden comunicarse con su Consejero Académico asignado o con nuestro Consejero de Salud Mental/Socio-emocional para hacer una referencia. Después de hacer la referencia, generalmente dura 1-2 semanas para que nuestro Consejero de Salud Mental/Socio-emocional se encuentre con el estudiante. Sin embargo, los estudiantes siempre son bienvenidos a visitar a nuestro Consejero de Salud Mental/Socio-emocional durante el día escolar, sin una referencia. 


Nuestro Consejero de Salud Mental/Socio-emocional puede brindar los siguientes servicios según las necesidades de los estudiantes y las familias:

  • Consejería a corto plazo

  • Consejería sin cita previa
