Mr. Eikenbary

Hello Everyone!


My name is Dave Eikenbary and I am the school counselor at Benson West. You may hear me referred to as “Mr. E” J I am super excited to start the 2022-23 school year! My role as a school counselor is to work to develop student success in academic, social and college and career readiness. I will interact with our students regularly, encouraging them to be their best! I will also provide classroom instruction and activities to develop academic and emotional skills. I specialize in Solution Focused Counseling. What does that mean? It is goal-directed, and it offers a set of clear and simple intervention methods that focus on making changes in perception, behavior, and social interactions. We build on and emphasize our strengths in dealing with issues in a positive way. I am concerned with helping our students problem solve issues they may have and get them back in their desks and ready to learn! J

Again, I am really excited for another school year! I consider myself so lucky to be able to work with our amazing staff and students.

If you ever have any questions or concerns, please feel free to call me at 531-299-5723.
