Counselor's Mission Statement

All students at Drexel are given access to counseling services and guidance through the school counselor.  My goal is to provide student-centered services to the students I serve in the Drexel School District.  Services include stress management, crisis intervention, coping strategies, and cognitive-behavioral techniques to empower our students.  My door is open to all students and parents.


In the event a student comes and talks to the counselor, the counselor must adhere to the Code of Ethics provided by the American Counseling Association (ACA), including the student's right to confidentiality and privileged communication.  Therefore, confidentiality between a counselor-student conversation will be upheld barring the following exceptions:

  • A counselor formally reporting to or consulting with administrative supervisors, colleagues or supervisors who share professional responsibility (i.e. in this instance all recipients of such information are similarly bound to regard the communication as privileged);
  • With written consent of the person who provided the information;
  • When a communication reveals the intended commission of a crime or harmful act and such disclosure is judged necessary to protect any person from a clear, imminent risk of serious mental or physical harm or injury or to forestall a serious threat to public safety;
  • When the client waives the privilege by bringing any public charges against the licensee, and;
  • When knowledge is acquired revealing abuse or neglect of a minor or client lacking the capacity to give informed consent that the minor or client lacking the capacity to give informed consent is the victim of a crime.

In the event that confidentiality must be breached, the counselor will first contact the parent/guardian of the student, followed by the proper authorities, if necessary.

In-School Counseling Services

Mr. Jon Stackhouse, M.S, NCC, PLPC

As the school counselor, I can offer my services to any student enrolled at Drexel K-12.  I earned my Masters of Science in Counseling at the University of Central Missouri and have been nationally certified by the National Board for Certified Counselors and provisionally licensed by the state of Missouri to serve as a Licensed Professional Counselor.  In order to maintain my provisional certification, I work closely with my supervisor, Dr. Nancy Forth, Ph. D, NCC, LPC.  With parent permission, I share information abut the students I serve with Dr. Forth and she provides extra guidance on my counseling sessions to ensure I am providing the greatest treatment for our students.

While I can provide limited services to all students, I MUST have parent permission to develop full treatment plans for students.  This service is FREE to all students in Drexel.  If you are interested in having your student receive services through me, please feel free to contact me at (816) 652-0402 or by email at jstackhouse@drexelbobcats.net.  You will also need to complete the form below and turn it in to Mr. Stackhouse.

Cass County Psychological Online Services

We are happy to partner with Cass County Psychological Services in Harrisonville, MO to bring online counseling services to our students.  For this program, students are assigned a counselor through the Cass County Psychological Services office and schedules weekly meetings with the counselor during the school day.  The purpose of this program is to offer an opportunity to meet with a licensed counselor outside of Drexel without having to worry about travel or scheduling issues.  Students schedule a time during the school day to meet with their counselor.  The counselor sends a link to Mr. Stackhouse, and Mr. Stackhouse finds a private area for the student and online counselor to meet.

Cass County Psychological Services takes most insurances and Medicare for our students.  For more information, please visit their website here.  If interested, please complete the intake information below and turn it in to Mr. Stackhouse.
