PERSONAL COUNSELING
   
Posted: 3/18/2015 3:21:20 PM
Are you concerned about a friend? Would you like to talk to a licensed counselor about personal matters? Find detailed information here.



Personal Counseling

The Advisement Center offers personal counseling to students needing to resolve existing problems, prevent potential problems, and develop new skills to enrich their lives.  Counselors meet with students one-on-one in a private and comfortable setting on campus and are free of charge to current students.

For more information on personal counseling, please contact
Melinda Berry, LPC at (903) 675-6224. 


If you are concerned about one of your friends or another student on campus, please contact a member of TVCC's Behavioral Intervention Team: Melinda Berry (903) 675-6224 or Harold Jones (903) 675-6256.

 

Remember the 4 R’s...


RECOGNIZE    RESPOND    REFER    REPORT


RECOGNIZE  Be familiar with and acknowledge symptoms of distress in others.

RESPOND  Privately initiate contact with the student displaying symptoms of distress.  Express your concerns in non-judgmental terms and listen to the student in a sensitive, non-threatening way.

REFER  Know your limits as a help-giver.  When a student needs more help than you are able to give, it is time to make a referral to:

  • Behavioral Intervention Team
  • Counseling Services
  • Disability Services
REPORT  Report your concerns and actions taken with a student to a member of the Behavioral Intervention Team:
