Counseling Program Information
The counseling program at the Early/Middle College at GTCC Greensboro is designed to help students, grades 9-13, make the most of their educational experience. As a school counselor, I am concerned about all students’ social-emotional well-being, academic progress, future planning, and development. All students participate in the school counseling program on a regular basis.
As a school counselor, I do not diagnose mental health conditions or charge any fees. As appropriate, I will assist the student and parent/guardian with the coordination of mental health services outside the school setting. The following specific activities are offered (but not limited to) by the counseling program:
- Individual and group counseling related to social-emotional, academic, or career issues on an as-needed basis.
- Appointments with parents/guardians to discuss concerns regarding their student’s social-emotional, academic, or career development.
- Assistance with future planning, college planning, and the college admissions process.
- Periodic classroom lessons related to positive academic, career, and social-emotional development.
Any information the student shares with me is confidential except: if a student directs me to tell someone else, I suspect a student is in danger of someone else, the student is a danger to themselves or others, in cases of suspected abuse/ neglect of a child, elder, or disabled person, or I am ordered by a court to disclose information.
In the event you have questions/ concerns about the counseling program, please contact me by email or phone (information listed at top of page).
