In this article, four vignettes are presented and deconstructed in order to demonstrate that school counselors are advocates, collaborators, and leaders when engaged as consultants. School counselor consultation appears to be a complex process based on a student advocacy disposition shared by consultees, and the process is a collaborative one resulting in recognition as leaders. Many skills are required if one is to be competent across the initiation, prescription, provision, collaboration, and mediation consultation modes.
