Ms. Cervantes

Welcome to Ms. Cervantes School Counseling Website!  I am the school counselor for Lemonwood School. I have the joy of working with students through classroom guidance lessons, small group counseling, and individual counseling.  I also collaborate with school staff and parents in order to best meet the needs of students.

What Does A School Counselor Do? 

Classroom Guidance Lessons

I visit each classroom multiple timesduring the the school year and have the chance to interact with every student during these lessons. Lessons typically last 25 minutes in length and cover topics such as school readiness skills, understanding feelings of self and others, problem solving skills, friendship skills, and study skills.

 Small Group Counseling

A variety of small groups are offered to students who may benefit from spending some extra time developing academic, social or emotional skills along with their peers, and to students who are coping with similiar life situations. Groups can have anywhere from 3-5 members and typically meet once a week. I work closely with teachers with the group referral process. 

 Indivdual Counseling

Some students can benefit from one-on-one counseling regarding academic, social, or emotional challenges.
