Meet our Delphi Counselor Mrs. Pierce.
My name is Sara Pierce and I am the Delphi Rise Prevention Counselor for North-Rose Wolcott. I have a Masters in Mental Health Cousenling from St. John Fisher College. I approach all my work with my students with an integrative approach, tailored to best fit the needs of my students and build on their own resiliency. I am privileged to be able to work with and be a support for students and families. In my spare time I love to spend time with my family fishing and being outdoors.
During this time of the public health crisis due to COVID-19, I will be providing telehealth counseling services for any North-Rose Wolcott Middle School or High School student who is need of support. You can schedule an appointment with me during regular school hours by reaching out to me via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
**You do not need to be presently receiving services in order to request a session.**
This year we are welcoming a few interns in our district. Laura Jablonski will be working directly with our Delphi Rise counselor this year.
My name is Laura Jablonski and I am currently working towards a Master's degree in Clinical and Mental Health Counseling at Medaille College. This year I have the pleasure of interning with Delphi Rise as counselor for the North-Rose Wolcott School District. I have a Bachelor's degree in Nutrition and Dietetics from Marywood University in Pennsylvania, and currently work as a Registered Dietitian at Hillside Childrens Center in Rochester. Through Hillside, I have several years of experience working with children and adolescents who have various mental health issues and emotional disturbances. My mission as a counseling intern is to be a positive support in the lives of the students and to provide them with the highest quality of therapeutic care with the goal of alleviating their suffering and guiding them through their struggles. In my free time, I enjoy practicing and teaching figure skating, exercising outdoors, traveling, and spending time with my family and cats!
We see a future for our community in which every person can access education, counseling and the tools for recovery, and in which every person is able to live a fulfilling and satisfying life free from stigma, abuse and addiction.
Delphi offers prevention through education and recovery through treatment. We empower people in the Greater Rochester/Finger Lakes area to make informed decisions about substance use and other behaviors. We offer a range of prevention programming (counseling and education).
School districts choose to partner with Delphi Drug and Alcohol Council to provide students and faculty access to substance abuse and chemical dependency prevention services. Counselors are well integrated into the school community. Experienced staff are trained in addictions counseling and provide school and community-based substance abuse prevention counseling programs to the school district. School-Based Prevention Counseling Services are utilized by school districts in both Monroe and Wayne counties.
Delphi offers evidenc-based prevention programs and trainings. School-based programs are designed to teach students in a given school or grade about the following topics or skills: emotional self-awareness, emotional control, self-esteem, positive social skills, social problem-solving, conflict resolution, coping strategies, substance abuse prevention and education. Adult professional development and trainings are offered as well.
Community and school district educational trainings include Mental Health First Aid and Youth Mental Health First Aid trainings. Someone you know could be experiencing a mental illness or crisis. You can help them. You are more likely to encounter someone – friend, family member, coworker, neighbor or member of the community — in an emotional or mental crisis than someone having a heart attack. Mental Health First Aid teaches a 5–step action plan to offer initial help to people with the signs and symptoms of a mental illness or in a crisis, and connect them with the appropriate professional, peer, social or self-help care. Anyone can take the 8-hour Mental Health First Aid course – first-responders, students, teachers, leaders of faith communities, human resources professionals or caring citizens.
Sometimes, the best first aid is you. Take the course, save a life, strengthen your community.
Delphi operates a full-service Outpatient Chemical Dependency Treatment Program that is fully licensed by the NYS Office of Alcoholism and Substance Abuse Services (OASAS). Outpatient Treatment Services are provided to both male and female clients 18 years and older. We provide evaluations, drug screening and individual, family and group counseling. Outpatient substance abuse treatment allows clients to remain at home and continue a normal daily routine while receiving the professional therapy and guidance needed to gain control over an addiction.
Delphi utilizes evidenced-based models of care that allows adults dealing with substance abuse issues to develop positive behaviors, maintain abstinence from alcohol and drug use, learn and reinforce relapse prevention skills and meet individualized treatment. Referrals come from the criminal justice system, school districts, DHS, parents and self-referrals.There is also a specialized track for perpetrators of domestic violence within this treatment program.
