Counselor's Corner

Hello Students and Families,

My name is Wendy Shobe and I am the Family School Liaison Worker (FSLW) at Father Leduc Catholic School.

As your FSLW, my role is to promote the overall well-being of our students. This includes not only academic success, but the social, emotional, and mental health of our students and their families. This may include one-on-one counselling, group programming, and in-class support to encourage learning and growth, build resilience, and develop social skills. For families, I am here to provide parenting support and help develop strategies to manage challenging situations. I am also able to refer and connect families to community agencies and resources that support a variety of needs.

Students and caregivers can contact me to discuss concerns relating to grief/loss, anxiety, depression, anger management, peer conflicts, stress, family change/conflict, self-harm, or suicidal ideation.


If you are struggling and would like to talk to someone in confidence, please send me an email or fill out the check-in form at the bottom of this page.
