Ms. Abigail Chamberlain
Welcome Penn Families!
My name is Abby Chamberlain, and I am thrilled to join the Penn community this year as the new School Counselor! I am passionate about helping students achieve self-confidence and success as they learn how to solve problems, navigate schoolwork, and face life challenges. I look forward to working with you this year to help our students grow!
As a School Counselor, my role is to promote the academic, personal, and social development of all students. I offer a number of services to achieve this goal:
Confidentiality promotes the safety, trust, and privacy of your student. As such, please note that all information discussed is confidential between me and the student UNLESS they share with me that someone is hurting them, that they are planning on hurting themselves or another person, or they give me permission to share.
I will send home notification if your student is assigned to receive behavioral health services (such as individual or group counseling). If you do NOT want your student to receive the assigned services, please call me, email me, or drop by my office. Otherwise, your student will begin receiving services as soon as they can be scheduled. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you ever have questions about the services your student is receiving.
If you would like to request counseling services for your student, click on "Counseling Services" to the left and then click on the appropriate counseling request link, or you can pick up a paper counseling referral form from my office (Room 114).
As always, you are welcome to reach out to me with any questions, concerns, or ideas of how I can better serve the Penn community. I'm looking forward to a great year working with you and your students!
