Ms. Amanda Rybicki
Welcome to the Haslett Middle School Counseling Department!
My name is Amanda Rybicki and I am incredibly excited to start as the Professional School Counselor at Haslett Middle School. The HMS Counseling Office offers a wide variety of support services for students, parents, and staff. When you are in need of help, this is a great place to start! This office offers crisis response, individual and group support, responsive services, and comprehensive guidance lessons to each student. Students experience a variety of challenges when facing today’s ever changing global society. As a school counselor, it is my intent to help students explore and develop their relationships, personal identity, and success in and around the school setting. My time with students is centered around a proactive and preventative school counseling program that is comprehensive in scope. The counseling program is committed to providing students with assistance and guidance with their academic success, future planning and career aspirations, and their personal/ social health and well-being.
I am guided by the Ethical Standards of the American School Counselor Association as well as MI state laws. My work and time with students, families, and school staff will be kept strictly confidential with the following exceptions: a) the counselee is being harmed by self or others or is the unreported victim of abuse, b) there is clear and present danger to another person, c) the counselee and I agree that some information needs to be shared with another person. There are no fees associated with counseling services provided in school.
I am incredibly lucky to be supported by an amazing HMS staff, but also by my husband and 2 children. In my spare time, I love spending time with family, reading, listening to podcasts, and enjoying some time outdoors.
Please feel free to contact me at any time regarding any questions or concerns.
