School Counseling Referral Form:

ello, everyone!  My name is Joan Karnes

former Ms.Feiling :)
I am so excited to introduce myself as the full-time School Counselor at Alpine Crest! Last year (2020-2021) was my first year as a Elementary School Counselor (after 10 years serving middle school students).. and I absolutely love working at Alpine Crest, especially spending time with our 'paw-some' students and such a supportive faculty.

I created a video about the role of a school Counselor, check it out HERE

 My role as School Counselor is to support students’ growth and development in the area of
Social Emotional Learning (SEL). Along with social emotional support, my work is also focused on supporting students' academic success and future readiness (college/career goals). I have the opportunity to work with all Alpine students individually or in small group settings (as needed). I also teach weekly classroom guidance lessons covering a wide-variety of topics such as Bullying Prevention, Emotional Regulation, Healthy Coping Skills, Growth Mindset, Mindfulness, Self-Control, Goal Setting, Problem Solving, Safe Boundaries, Character Education, and more!
