Thanks for visiting! My name is Danielle Ziehmer. I am a graduate from MSU and taught kindergarten for six years. I received a Master of Arts Degree in Counseling from Spring Arbor University and am a licensed school counselor for grades K-12. By simply clicking on the tabs on this page, you will find an assortment of information.

The role of the school counselor is to support all students’ growth and awareness in academic, personal/social, and career areas. This involves working in collaboration with administration, staff, parents, and the community to promote students’ ongoing educational success and skill development.
I am in the classrooms throughout the year to teach guidance/prevention lessons. In addition to classroom lessons, individual counseling sessions and small groups are available based on the specific needs of the students.
School counselors are not able to provide long-term therapy, but can provide brief, solution-focused counseling to students on a variety of issues and concerns. When more attention and intervention are required, outside counseling may be necessary. Please contact me if you ever need a list of a few counseling resources in the area.
