During the school closing counselors are still available to serve students and the community. Please don't hesitate to reach out via email if you have any questions or concerns.

How can we help?

We look forward to getting to know your family, and working together to help your child be successful at HMMS.  A majority of our day is spent working directly with students; as a result, we are not always available for drop-in meetings. Whenever possible, please call/email in advance to make an appointment.  Thank you!

HMMS Counselors Kimberly Heath and Sarah WallingThe Role of the Professional School Counselor

The Professional School Counselor is a certified educator trained in counseling techniques and strategies designed to meet the academic, personal/social, and career development needs of students. They support a collaborative learning environment by working with students, parents, teachers, administrators, and community agencies.

Even though it is an exciting time, middle school often comes with a unique set of challenges-from academic to personal and social.  Counselors are prepared to help navigate these challenges, by providing nonjudgmental support and encouragement.

Confidentiality

The relationship between a student and his/her counselor is established and maintained due to trust and respect. In order for meaningful dialogue to occur, confidentiality must be part of the foundation of the counseling relationship. We stress to our students, "What you say in here, stays in here." There are 3 exceptions to this rule, and in these situations our primary objective is to make sure the student has the continued support they need. Communication is vital during this stage of development and we encourage every student we work with to share their "inner world" with their family and friends.

Exceptions to Confidentiality:

  • Someone is hurting you
  • You want to hurt someone
  • You want to hurt yourself
