Timber Creek Counseling Department:

Empowering & Inspiring Excellence Through a Developmental Guidance Program

 

Social-Emotional, Character & Guidance Lessons

Teaching & inspiring good character, along with ensuring positive mental health is part of educating the whole child.  Character traits such as honesty, responsibility, respect, self-control are emphasized throughout the school year.  Social Emotional Learning lessons may include topics related to feelings, friendship, bullying, conflict resolution, violence prevention/safety, healthy lifestyles, self-control, communication skills, study skills, and decision making.

Counseling Referral

Please contact the counselor if you have concerns about your child including:

  • Academic performance
  • Behavior
  • Sudden changes in behavior/mood
  • Family changes
  • Crisis

In addition to parents, any school staff may refer a student to the counselor.  If a child is in a crisis or is visibly upset, we will do our best for the child to be seen that day by the counselor.

A confidential online “Counseling Request Form” is available as a link on the top right column of the LISD TCE Counselor webpage. 

Individual/Group Counseling

Counseling is provided on a short-term basis varying anywhere from 1-4 sessions.  If a student needs additional services, the counselor will share outside counseling agency resources with the parent.

Consent/Confidentiality

The counselor may see a student one time without parent consent; however, consent is required for services to continue.

All sessions are kept confidential and will not be shared with others.  Exceptions are made if the student shares concerns of his/her safety or safety of others.  School staff are required by law to report concerns of abuse or neglect.
