Do You Feel Caught in a Constant Cycle of Frustration?

Imagine another year of the same relentless demands and frustrations as a school counselor. The overwhelming workload continues to consume your time, leaving you feeling perpetually stressed. The feeling of being the go-to problem solver for everyone repeats itself, leaving little room for your own well-being. Complaints from teachers who often do more harm than good when they confront students, and confrontations with angry parents remain an everyday occurrence. And the students who say, "I don't know" seem no closer to finding solutions.

As you stay stuck in this cycle, the cost of inaction grows. Your professional life remains overwhelming, unfulfilling, and marked by constant dependence. The opportunity to transform your role, regain control of your time, and empower others slips through your fingers.

Don't let another year go by without taking action. Introduction to Solution Focused School Counseling is your lifeline to break free from this cycle of frustration. With the personal guidance of Dr. Linda Metcalf, you can reclaim your time, confidently handle challenging situations, and empower those around you. The choice is yours: continue to bear the weight of inaction or seize this opportunity to transform your career and your life.

Linda has so much experience! Her trainings just flow. I like her examples and enjoy the breakout rooms activities. You feel her caring and compassionate personality.

Andrea De Anda

I've been a counselor for years and no one really teaches you HOW to be a school counselor. Linda's training is always extremely helpful, for a new counselor or for veterans that may have never had something this useful before.
