Schedule an appointment with our Counseling Staff!

Our mission as a counseling department is to provide students, parents, and staff counseling and guidance  services including mental and emotional health, and college and career planning. In order to best serve TAUSD, each of our counselors maintains an active  caseload related to their specialties. Students, staff and parents are encouraged to meet with the school counselor by providing a brief description of your topic or issue.
Please note: Our counselors are committed to being available to meet individuals’ needs. The counseling staff will coordinate personal/social and/or academic support to students in order to provide comprehensive services when the counselor feels that talking to one of the other team members  would help the student’s success.
