We know that counselors are the heart of a school. When the heart is strong- your school stays healthy. Our Consultation Circles for School Counselors provide the training, care, and support counselors need to do their best work. 

Linden mental health practitioners provide counselors with a confidential platform to discuss challenging cases, find creative solutions to difficult situations in their schools, and most importantly: to share what’s going well.
