• Welcome to Mrs. Birnbaum's Counseling Page 


    My name is Lisa Birnbaum. This is my 18th year at Hellgate Elementary School.  I am a Class 6 Certified School Counselor and School Psychologist.  I have held a variety of roles during my time at HES.  Currently I am the School Counselor in Bldg 1.  I am also the TAG (talented & gifted) Coordinator for the district.    My focus as a School Counselor is clear & consistent........to advocate for ALL children and foster their success at school. 

    The Counseling Program at HESD #4 is designed to be developmental and preventative; I visit classrooms twice a month to deliver lessons on social emotional skills (solving problems, regulating emotions), academic success (goal setting, academic skills) and career development (career exploration).

    I also meet with students in small groups for a variety of topics-- skill building, social thinking, family change, friendship groups, and more. 

    Students can also meet with me individually as needed.

    Please feel free to contact me with any questions and/or concerns you may have about your child's academic or social/emotional/behavioral functioning.
