Counselor Corner


I'm Brandi Urban M. Ed., LPC, and the Enge-Washinton Intermediate School Counselor.  I'm excited to be working with the 4th - 6th graders and am happy you are here to view the different services and programs we have.  

The counseling program at EWIS is designed to be preventative and developmental.  I help students develop skills to deal with problems and learn to deal with changes in life.  I also help students learn new skills to use to make the most of their educational opportunities and empower them in their own learning and making positive choices in their lives.  

In this webpage you will find information about classroom lessons, small groups, family resources and other information related to your student's school counseling program and what it provides. 

Please feel free to contact me about any questions you may have.  I am here to help your child succeed at EWIS!
