Araceli Canchola- Counselor of Educational Options


831-392-3560 Ext. 2894

Counseling Philosophy


I see school counselors as facilitators of change in students and the school environment.

Specifically, student’s needs should be met as they face challenges in the various areas of their lives.

This includes, academic development, dealing with personal and social issues, selecting a college, or deciding on a career. I also consider student advocacy a part of my role.

I believe a good school counseling program is built upon measurable student competencies, advocacy, leadership, accountability, evaluation, professional development, and team collaboration.

Additionally, school counselors are part of the community of educators that consists of individuals who serve students in a variety of positions. It is therefore vital to have effective communication with the entire community of educators.
