Welcome to the Counseling Center!

Welcome to New Horizon Center Counseling Center! We are excited to be back again to join the Wolf Pack and to get to know you all throughout this year!

Our vision is for every student to be aware of the resources available through the counseling center, to enhance their skills and knowledge for postsecondary success; be it in furthering their education, entering the workforce, or becoming part of an Idaho legacy of strong military servicemen and women.

As students are given a nonjudgmental, compassionate space to share their goals and challenges, they will be empowered to act as self-advocates, establish healthy social relationships, and develop strong personal and academic skills that will be of lifelong service to them. 

We look forward to answering any questions you may have and we are available to contact via email (saxtonta@sd25.us) (nielsoka@sd25.us) or by phone (208-237-2233 ext. 163 for Tanner, and 208-237-2233 ext. 121 for Karen) or you are welcome to come visit at the office! 

 

Need a break from study? Meet some of our Native American students through the Club's most recent video project.

Technology and Relationships

Cellphones are a way to connect in a relationship, just don't let it take the place of face-to-face communication.

Constant Texting

  • Not catching the hint that you don't want to text 24/7--let them know you want some time off the phone or just turn your phone off. Don't let the texts go from caring to controlling!
  • Don't let anyone make you feel bad for not textng back right away.
  • If you like to text a lot, just ask if they're okay with how often. And, if you ever feel like you are obesessing, give yourself some space.

Online Netiquette

  • If you don't know them, don't respond. 
  • Don't post anything you wouldn't want parents, grandparents, teachers or future bosses t osee. Keep it PG. Play nicely. If someone isn't doing the same, unfriend the person and talk to someone you trust. Harassment is never ok.
  • Keep settings private. Don't over-share
  • Social media is just one more way to socialize. There is no reason to act like a different person online. Be yourself!
  • A perk of social networking--no awkward pauses! So take all the time you want to reconsider what you say in a post, comment, status, message, or tweet.

Using Technology positively in a relationship

  • Text caring and thoughtful messages.
  • Send shout-outs or birthday wishes.
  • Post a photo on favorite show, artist, or activity
  • Post an event inviting friends/family.
  • Snapchat a funny picture of yourself doing an activity you love.
  • Raise awareness about an issue that matters to you!
