Hello- I’m Eileen Spindor (aka Ms Eileen) BEH’s school counselor. I love being part of the BEH community. As a comprehensive school counselor I am here to support all students and their families. Some of the ways I do this are:
Whole class lessons covering social and emotional learning, friendship skills, problem solving and other topics that may need a counselor's guidance and help.
Small limited term groups that build on our whole class lessons that can include, but are not limited to, coping skills for big emotions, friendship, communication, and problem solving.
Individual meetings for check ins, and being a supportive safe person for students to talk to.
I do not provide mental health counseling but am always available to be a school based support for students who are experiencing mental health struggles.
With Families I can be a resource for:
Mental health provider referrals and resources
Resource finding and referral for food, clothing, and some other types of assistance.
A school contact who is part of the team supporting all students.
I am best reached through email at firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also leave me a voice message at 503-916- x or a message can be left for me through the main office.
