About Mrs. Frazier, M.Ed., School Counseling

Hello Belmont Eagles! My name is Mrs. Frazier, and I am one of the School Counselor at Belmont Elementary School. I was born and raised in Alexandria, Virginia. I received my master's degree from Liberty University. My role as a school counselor has truly been rewarding and I'm excited to be working with the students, staff, and parents of Belmont Elementary.

In my spare time I enjoy spending time with family, friends and traveling.

I am at Belmont Elementary Monday-Friday from 7:55 a.m.-2:55 p.m. and can be reached via email at

Belmont Elementary School Counseling Department


The students at Belmont Elementary School are healthy and responsible individuals that are excited to learn and grow together. All students of Belmont are engaged and participate in the comprehensive school counseling program which works together with parents, teachers, administrators, and members of the community. As globally competitive 21st century leaders, they are empowered to continue to be lifelong learners.


The mission of the Belmont Elementary School Counseling Department is to provide an equal and accessible comprehensive program that addresses the academic, career, and personal/social development of all students in a safe and nurturing environment. The Belmont Elementary School Counseling Department will collaborate with the administration, staff, and families to empower student growth and build skills for lifelong learning.

The School Counselor's Role

School counselors develop and implement a school counseling program promoting equity and access for students. School counselors work to help close achievement, opportunity, attainment and funding gaps in their schools, districts and communities. School counselors are mindful of school and community perceptions of the treatment of underrepresented groups and understand the importance of collaborating with school and community groups to help all students succeed. School counselors demonstrate cultural competence.

PWCS school counselors recognize that students and parents or guardians have a right to know the limits of confidentiality. Please click here to see PWCS Regulation 651-2 regarding information on the confidentiality of student-disclosed information.

Your PWCS school counselor will discuss with you how the email or Zoom platform you are using for academic advising or parent/student consultation works, as well as some best practices for using the platform.

Counseling Services

Counselor Schedule:
Office Hours - 7:55 a.m.-2:55 p.m.
School Counselor's will have daily counseling lessons, individual counseling and group counseling (times will vary).

Small Group Counseling
Belmont counselors offer a variety of groups throughout the school year. Groups are formed based on student needs. School Counselors form groups after receiving requests/concerns about students from parents, teachers, and students themselves.

Groups typically meet weekly for 6 to 8 sessions. Groups frequently offered include:

Friendship/Social Skills
Self-Esteem/Confidence Building
Work Habits/Study Skills
Changing Families
Coping with Feelings/Anger Management

Individual Counseling
The school counselors at Belmont are available for individual student counseling. Students may refer themselves to the school counselor by email, phone, or through their teacher and parent. Besides self-referral, students can be referred to the school counselor by teachers, parents, administrators, or the Intervention Team.

If you are interested in having your child participate in a group or individual counseling, please contact Mrs. Frazier at or Mrs. Redman at
