DR. JAYA BARVE

I AM POSSITIVE

AND STRONGLY  BELIVE IN………..

                                

 Our goal is to focus on the individual by encouraging realistic decision-making along with self-reflection and self-direction.

 A proactive and thoughtful approach will ensure a successful journey.  Self-discovery, determining personal strengths and weaknesses, goal setting, overcoming personal challenges and, finally, decision-making skills all contribute to the successful completion of Upper School and signify an important step toward adulthood.

 

I look forward to working closely with students in the areas of personal, social, and academic development. My goal as a counselor is to assist students with overcoming barriers that may prevent students from achieving the overall (academic) success. I encourage students to grow in maturity to actualize their potential & to utilize their resources towards their definite goals.

  We conduct assessments to identify strengths and weaknesses in problem solving, processing, and academic skills in students age 6 and older and meet weekly with students during these times, and we discuss age-appropriate topics such as social skills, peer mediation, problem solving, body awareness, self concept, and educational/vocational planning. We are also available to assist students with personal issues, including social/emotional concerns, academic guidance, and career exploration. Confidentiality is of utmost ethical importance and is always practiced unless there is a question of the safety of the student or others. 

Students may be referred to us by parents, teachers, or themselves.
