Hi Illleana,

The difference between the two type of professions is a school counselor provides services to students, teachers, and parents. Whereas, the school psychologist might see a student for mental health disorders and help the district learn about mental health disorders Other difference is school counselors help students prepare for their career by giving them resources for he/she to read and research. Lastly, the school psychologist will be the person the student talks to when their having problems he/she may not be comfortable with talking with their peers and parents.

I hope this helped answer your question :-)
