Counselor's Corner

Counselor's Corner

My name is Vanessa Daniels. I am a proud high school graduate of Lamar Consolidated Independent School District. My passion for helping others was ignited early in life. Most of my inspiration and desire to help kids stemmed from the powerful and lasting impact my teachers had on my life. 

Educationally, my undergraduate studies were completed at Sam Houston State University. I also attended Prairie View A&M University where I was awarded a Master of Arts degree in Counseling. My career as an educator spans two decades as a reading teacher and a counselor to adolescent students. 

Being creative, caring, and insightful are all dominant attributes that best describe me. In my leisure time, I enjoy reading, listening to music, spending time with my family, and volunteering for various organizations that are dear to my heart. Being a life-long learner is the true motivation behind all that I do, and I enthusiastically embrace all opportunities to expand and grow in ways that will benefit the individuals I serve. 

Individual Counseling 

All students must deal with difficult issues sometime during their school career. These concerns sometimes include conflicts with other students as well as stressful family changes. The counselor is here to help students work through individual problems they may be facing in order to help them be successful here at school.

Group Counseling

Group counseling provides a unique opportunity for students to be encouraged by others at the same age who are facing similar problems. Counseling groups are offered according to the needs of students and may include such issues as bullying, divorce, grief, self esteem and friendship.

Classroom Guidance Lessons

The most effective way to meet the needs of the greatest number of students is through providing classroom guidance lessons. These lessons may be led by the Counselor or the classroom teacher. They include topics that are relevant to the entire school population such as character education, conflict resolution skills, career development, studying and test taking skills and drug prevention.
