School Counseling

Greetings from your counseling team, Joey and Amina! We are social workers by trade and have a long history of working with young folks within the school system. We love this work and love helping students navigate the many issues that can impact them especially during this day and age. The counseling department's goal is to provide a safe space for students to access help and services when difficulties arise. We also aim to normalize mental health care and wellness so that it becomes a part of our students regular practice. 
 
Below we’ve created a list of services that we provide which we hope you will find helpful. If you are interested in meeting with one of us, you can reach us both via email or by stopping by our offices. Joey, who is located on the 1st floor of the Salkind building, can be reached at jmintz@urbanschool.org. Amina, who is located on the 2nd floor in the Page Street building by the backyard, can be reached at asamake@urbanschool.org. We look forward to meeting you!
