Need Mental Health Counseling

Hello all,

My name is Caitlin Goicoechea-Hart. I am a Licensed Clinical

Professional Counselor (LCPC) working for a local agency, Children's Therapy Place. You will see me a couple times a week in the Trio room as I serve as SJH's school based counselor. School based counseling is an amazing service that allows the students to receiving mental health counseling at school. This eliminates multiple barriers that arise when getting children to the agency for counseling.

You can refer any student to their school counselor and they know how to complete the rest of the referral to get them on my caseload to be seen.

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to reach out to me: or pop in the Trio Rm on Wednesdays.

Thank you
