Counseling

Welcome to Ms. Gosz’s School Counseling Page!
(Please keep checking-in for more information, web-page is updated regularly.)
About Ms. Gosz:

I am happy to introduce myself as the School Counselor for Drummond Montessori Magnet School! 
I have many roles and responsibilities as a counselor, but most importantly I have the joy of working with each student throughout the school year through a variety of programs, some of which include: classroom lessons, small group counseling, individual counseling, and GoCPS High School applications. I also collaborate with school staff, faculty, administration and parents in order to best meet the needs of students.

More information regarding counseling programs:

Small Group Counseling:
A variety of small groups will be offered throughout the year to students who may benefit from spending some extra time developing academic, social, or emotional skills along with their peers, and to students who may be experiencing similar life situations. Groups can range anywhere from 2-6 members and meet for only a few weeks at a time. I try my best to meet with small groups at a time that does not take away from classroom presentations.

Individual Counseling:
Some students may benefit from short-term, one-on-one counseling regarding academic, social, or emotional challenges. If you feel your child may benefit from individual counseling, please email or call, to set up a time talk regarding the issue your child is experiencing. It is important to note that this type of counseling is not therapy, but can be very helpful for children experiencing a challenge or situation in their life. 

Classroom Guidance Lessons:

Throughout the year I will provide developmental classroom guidance lessons or social emotional lessons to different classrooms. Some of the topics we may cover include: understanding feelings of ourselves and others, peer relationships, problem-solving skills, goal-setting and decision-making, and conflict resolution.
