School Counselors

Our counseling program is designed to address the needs of all students by helping them acquire competencies in career planning and exploration, knowledge of self/others and educational/vocational development. The school counseling program consists of various programs: individual and group counseling, parent and teacher consultations, group guidance, referral assistance to other programs and services in the community, and classroom guidance.


Meet Mrs. Coleman

Greetings! I am a proud graduate of the Amherst Schools. I began teaching third grade in Amherst in 2001. In 2018, I transitioned into the role of school counselor. My husband, Ryan, and I are raising our three children here as well. Outside of school, I enjoy taking vacations with my family and watching my children in their various activities. I love seeing my current and former students out and about. It is one of the many reasons I feel so fortunate to work and live in our wonderful community!

I look forward to working with everyone over the course of the year!

Healthy Mind: Lorain County Board of Mental Health

In 1967, state lawmakers passed legislation creating Community Mental Health Boards. The Lorain County Board of Mental Health (LCBMH) is the local public agency that plans, funds, monitors and evaluates a system of services for residents with mental illness in Lorain County.

A citizen's board of 18 community members decides the services to be provided and funded based upon state requirements and community needs. It also monitors and evaluates delivery of those services. Private, not-for-profit, including independent community agencies are contracted by LCBMH to provide an array of mental health services, including counseling, peer support, community support programs, prevention, consultation, crisis intervention, housing development and management, and vocational employment support.
