This website is dedicated to the incredible young people, who are the future of our country, as a resource to help them get through the fog and obscurity of growing into an adult; as they hope, dream, and make plans for their lives; and as they build the bridge to their future.
Dan Royster, MA, MS,
The truth is you're a teenager now and irreversibly on your way to becoming a young adult.
Being a teenager, succeeding in high school, fitting in, making friends, learning independence, autonomy, responsibility, and also planning your future can be hard.
These are just some of the things that you'll need to accomplish as a teenager. But, you are not alone; I am here to help you. As a high school guidance counselor, I am here to help you with all of these transitions, decisions, choices, and stages of life.
THAT'S RIGHT! You're Not A Child Anymore!
You need someone with knowledge and experience to help you; someone that understands you, someone you can confide in, and that is willing to listen--someone you can trust, respect, and look up to as a guide for you.
That is the job of a Guidance Counselor--to act as an advocate and mentor for you. As a Counselor, I am here to help you every step of the way and I am always here to help.
