Access to Mental Health Services in Moreland
Moreland School District’s Counseling Program offers free, comprehensive school-based counseling supports to students. These services are provided by licensed and pre-licensed mental health professionals and credentialed school counselors. Services offered are evidence based, positive and strengths focused, and include individual, group, and whole class therapies in areas such as: stress management, coping and social skills, strategies to deal with grief and loss, anger management, conflict resolution, substance abuse therapy, and academic empowerment. When needed, the school counselor may also refer the student to outside professionals if school-based counseling is not sufficient to meet a student’s needs. Parents interested in referring their child to on-site counseling services may contact their child’s school office to obtain referral and consent forms.

This is my first year at Latimer! I was an intern at Moreland Middle School last year, so this is my second year in the district. This year at Latimer, I will be supporting students in grades TK-5.
I love being a school counselor because I love helping kids discover their values and work towards becoming their best selves!
My favorite quote is: "This is your world, you can do anything you want." (Bob Ross)"
I’m Miss Aimee.
This is my second year at Latimer and I am so excited to be back. I love everything about working at a school. The students, the teachers, the energy and excitement, and of course the counseling! I really enjoy talking with students about what is going on at school or in their lives and supporting them however I can.
You can find me in Room 6 - The WOW Room.
