While students will be able to resolve most of the difficulties
they experience with the assistance of parents, friends, or staff
members, there may be times when social/emotional issues interfere
with the adjustment to LASA's academic program.
Wellness Counselors frequently work with
students who struggle with personal issues, including:
* Eating Issues
* Identity Issues
* Drug/Alcohol Use
* Social Issues
Although Wellness Counselors are equipped to provide continued
support at school, they can also help provide referrals to outside
resources, therapists and clinicians.
If a student's concern is mostly academic in nature,

Counselors are all experts in personal counseling, study skills,
and stress reduction!
