Military and Family Life Counselors

  • Military & Family Life CounselingOur District has Military & Family Life Counselors (MFLCs) who are able to provide services to our active duty or newly retired military families at several NTPS schools. MFLCs provide short-term, nonmedical problem-solving counseling and support to assist children, youth, parents, family members, and school staff. Except for the duty to warn, these services are strictly confidential and are not affiliated with any one branch of military service. Some topics addressed may include school adjustment, separation and reunion adjustments, daily life issues, and behavioral concerns.

    Our MFLCs can provide monthly Deployment/PCS Groups, one-on-ones, military lunch groups, small groups, etc.

    Parents will need to sign and return this MFLC Consent Form for students to opt in or out of MFLC services. The consent form can be returned directly to your child's school office or counseling center. For questions, please contact our District Military Support Staff, Katie Linfoot, militarysupport@nthurston.k12.wa.us, or 360-412-4407.
