Facilitating and encouraging student growth and development at their pace; specialized to meet and fit their needs. Supporting and assisting the student in enhancing their academic, social, and personal goals while providing a culture of openness, acceptance, and advocacy.

Confidentiality is paramount and every student is ensured their right to seeing the counselor in confidence. If students report suicide, abuse, or danger to themselves or others, the confidentiality understanding is forfeited as the wellness of the student is priority and these items will be reported.

PWCS cares deeply about students’ emotional well-being.  If a student is in need of emotional support during this time, please feel free to send an email to Student Support Services at studentsupportservices@pwcs.edu. A school mental health or health professional will answer and offer virtual support to students to the best of their ability.  This email is not to be used for emergency situations as it will not be monitored 24 hours a day.  If a student is ever in an emergency situation, he/she is encouraged to call 911 or utilize one of the resources listed below:
