DDHS Counseling Department

Welcome to the David Douglas High School Counseling Office!


As an integral part of the education program, David Douglas High School Counselors work to empower all students through academic, career, social emotional and community engagement opportunities.  Counselors partner with families, staff and communities to ensure that all students can learn, grow and thrive.

As licensed counselors, we provide counseling services that are based on the American School Counselor Association (ASCA) model (www.schoolcounselor.org).  As a reminder we meet with students for a variety of reasons including anxiety, depression, frustrations with friends, family challenges, academic support, career exploration, college support, class planning, graduation requirements, family resources (including housing, food, and clothing) and more.
