Your Neighborhood Homeschool Counselor

"Where Community Meets Service"​​

About Mrs. Shayla Bryant, MS

Certified K-12 Professional School Counselor
Greetings families and educators!

My name is Shayla Bryant, and I am Your Neighborhood Homeschool Counselor (YNHC). After completing a Masters degree in school counseling at Capella University, I noticed there too is a need for school-counseling services for the homeschooled community as well. I thought to myself, the homeschooled students and families need Supportive services just like other students receive in traditional schools. Therefore, the idea of providing school counseling services to homeschoolers came alive!

For 10 years, I have been advocating for youth and families through mental health facilities/agencies, and educational settings. Previously, as a life coach/case manager, and lead behavioral specialist, I have worked with many families of diverse backgrounds; giving me an understanding of unique and sensitive issues that helped me become multi-culturally competent. I understand the importance of confidentiality and practice of the American School Counselor Association (ASCA) Ethical Standards.

YNHC focuses on providing support with academic, career planning, and social/emotional development plus more for grades 8 through 12 guided by the American School Counselor Association (ASCA) National Model.
