We in the Heritage Counseling Office understand that there are many influences in an adolescent's life and that many outside factors can influence one's emotional and academic development. While we are always available to meet with and assist students through a variety of experiences, part of becoming an adult involves knowing when to ask for help and whom to ask. With this in mind, the information below is intended to be a resource for students and parents, inflorming you as to the outside counseling services offered in the Saginaw area.
