Cascade's School Counseling Program Welcomes You!


About Me

Hi there!  My name is Katy Michel.  I am the School Counselor at Cascade Elementary.  I am here to advocate and teach ALL students essential academic, career and personal/social skills they can utilize in and out of the classroom.  I work with students in a larger classroom setting, a small group setting and on an individual basis.  I am excited to work along side you and your family as we make your child's school year a rewarding and impactful experience.

Classroom Lessons! 

I have the opportunity to provide intervention within the classroom setting.  I teach 12, 30 minute lessons to all classrooms.  I utilize the Second-Step curriculum to guide my instruction.  Topics such as school readiness skills, understanding your own and other's feelings, empathy, problem-solving, anti-bullying and more is taught to all students.

Small-Group Counseling!

I also offer small-group counseling sessions.  Small-groups are offered to students who may benefit from additional academic, social or emotional skills.  Students are grouped with 3-7 other peers who also need additional supports.  Students are taught needed skills such as managing and understanding their emotions, self-regulation, creating positive friendships,  understanding divorce, building positive self-esteem and more.  Students are able to universalize the concepts and work collaboratively.  A supportive and encouraging culture is created where students can be successful.

Individual Counseling!

Short-term counseling is also provided through Cascade's school counseling program.  I support individual students during times of transition, heightened stress, critical change or other situations impeding upon student success. I do not provide therapy or long-term counseling. However, I am prepared to recognize and respond to student mental health needs and assist students and families seeking outside resources.  Feel free to contact me with any questions regarding small-group or individual counseling.
