Counseling

As Enon counselors, we strive to provide a comprehensive school counseling program.  A comprehensive school counseling program supports all students in reaching their full academic potential while helping to contribute to their social/emotional growth and their career development. Our program strives to promote and enhance student wellness and achievement by delivering tiered services that assist students in acquiring skills, knowledge, and attitudes needed to become effective students, responsible citizens, and lifelong learners in an ever-changing global society.

If you need assistance, please contact your child’s school counselor at 804-639-8341 between 8:15 a.m. and 3:30 p.m.

Hello, I am Pamela Neville. I am a native of Petersburg, VA and a two time graduate of Virginia State University. I was a classroom teacher for over 15 years before becoming a Counselor. I am married and we have three children. I am a good listener and I have a sense of humor. I enjoy swimming, playing badminton, corn hole and listening to music. I am looking forward to working with our “Gators” and their families this year. I am excited to work with First, Third, and Fifth grades!

Hello Gators! I am so happy to join the Enon family for the 2022-2023 school year. I am originally from Pennsylvania. I graduated with a degree in elementary education from West Virginia University and received my master’s degree from the University of North Carolina at Pembroke in school counseling. I have taught school for nine years and am entering into my fifth year as a school counselor. I have two children, and I am a proud military spouse. I love to travel, read, and watch my son play soccer for the Richmond Kickers. I will be the grade level counselor for kindergarten, 2nd, and 4th grades. I am looking forward to working with and meeting our Enon families!

Hi Gators! I’m so happy to be with you again for the 2022-23 school year! I joined the Enon family in 2019. Before that, I was a middle school counselor in Chesterfield County for three years. I also have past teaching experience and am certified to teach grades K-5. I have an undergraduate degree in Elementary Education from Radford University, a master’s degree in Social Foundations of Education from the University of Virginia, and a master’s degree from Virginia Commonwealth University in Counselor Education. I am a National Certified Counselor and a Child and Adolescent Trauma Professional. This year, I am splitting my time between Enon and Evergreen Elementary School. I will be here Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday AM.

Classroom guidance lessons are extremely important in the school setting, as they allow us to be proactive in educating all of our students on a wide variety of topics.

Classroom Guidance Lessons:

  • Encourage social/emotional growth
  • Foster effective learning climates for children
  • Help children develop healthy self-concepts
  • Assist children in developing self-regulation skills
  • Provide opportunities for children to establish good relationships with others
  • Encourage positive attitudes toward the world of work and a desire to contribute

 

Lessons will be conducted in each classroom at least once per month.

Individual Counseling

Individual counseling is available to all students in need. A request for individual counseling may be made by a parent, teacher, administrator, or student using this form. Students are able to express concerns in a safe environment where problem solving can take place. Topics of concern may include: friendship, grief, emotion management, anxiety, family changes, and school attendance.

Techniques used during individual counseling sessions include stress reduction strategies, role playing, goal setting, creation of art work, discussion, etc.

Although we provide a multitude of services for students, intensive, long-term counseling is not available through the school counseling program.  However, we are happy to provide you with a list of local providers.

Group Counseling

Small group counseling is facilitated by one of our school counselors and consists of several students, who are facing normal developmental issues. The small group setting serves as a way for students to talk about feelings and concerns with other children who have similar needs.

Each session is approximately 30 minutes and takes place once a week over a six to eight week period. Group times are coordinated with classroom teachers so as to disrupt as little instructional time as possible.

Some examples of small groups are:

  • Zones of Regulation (managing emotions)
  • Changing Families (divorce/separation/adoption)
  • Friendship (social skills)
  • Feeling Better About Me (self-concept)
  • Grief and Loss
  • School Success (study skills, organization, etc.)

Signed parent permission is required for participation in group counseling.
