School counselors see students in class settings to teach guidance and promote healthy character development, in small groups based upon identified need, and sometimes individually. When a school counselor meets with a student individually, it is typically short term and focused on creating a positive change in the school setting. If a parent is seeking therapy for his/her child, a list of outside community referrals is always available. The list below has been compiled for your information. However, GPISD does not endorse any one individual or agency over another. These therapists and agencies are not affiliated with GPISD, nor are they personally recommended. You may want to contact your insurance company for a list of referrals.
