Welcome to the EPHS Counseling Department. All school counselors have a minimum of a Master's Degree in school counseling and are licensed by the State of Minnesota. Counselors are available through individual appointments, group guidance activities, walk-ins, emails, and voicemail. Counselors offer support to examine each student's personal, social, career and/or academic issues. Counselors help students clarify their feelings, thoughts and behaviors; explore alternatives; and make decisions. For more information on school counselors, visit the Minnesota School Counselor Association or the American School Counselor Association.
