Counseling & Support
The Ánimo Venice counselors are here to support students and families with a holistic approach, providing services in both academics and non-school related issues. Ms. Pulido and Mr. Garcia believe your emotional health is just as important as your academics. If you find yourself in need of having to talk to someone, Ms. Pulido and Mr. Garcia are here for you to speak with. They can assist you if you have experienced or are experiencing:
High levels of stress and anxiety
Trouble with Anger Management
Grief and Loss
In addition, you may request for a referral to receive further support through individual counseling. Individual counseling provides students with a one-on-one opportunity to speak with a counselor. Services are provided at school through Green Dot’s MFT interns and Didi Hirsch interns; One-on-One counseling is totally confidential and voluntary. If you do not wish to receive services on site, a referral can be made to receive services outside of school through Didi Hirsch. If you are unsure if you want individual counseling, come to the counseling office for more information. Ms. Pulido and Mr. Garcia are here to help students achieve personal and academic growth, so don’t hesitate to drop by.
