Our VCC Counselors this year are Chad Agostini, Odalis Garcia, and Rachel Fontana. (Introduction letter 2022-2023)
As School-Based Counselors, they will provide students with personal and emotional support in whatever life tends to throw at them. Especially in these ever-changing times. High school is not always easy for everyone and now can be very daunting in more ways than one.
They will be on site for the 2022-23 school year. They look forward to working with staff from last year, as well as new staff this year. Rachel will be on campus on Mondays and Tuesdays, 8:00-3:30 p.m. Odalis Garcia will be on campus Thursdays and Fridays, 8:00-3:30 p.m. Chad will be on campus Monday through Friday, 8:30-4:00 p.m.
Students struggling with issues and behaviors listed below may be helped through our counseling services:
- anger management
- social skills, withdrawn or shyness
- organizational, study skills, and failing grades
- coping with stress or depression
- having a difficult time with transitions, divorce, or family problems
- conflict resolution
- grief and loss
- Inappropriate boundries
Our VCC Counselors are here as a support for students and as a resource to parents and school staff as well. In seeing your students, please fill out a Referral Form
or Student Self Referral Form
so that they are brought up to speed on the student’s certain situation. A required permission slip must be signed if you would like for the counselors to continue seeing your student after the first initial visit. VCC Counselors are not allowed to see students again until they have received a signed Permission Slip
. Please return these forms to them via email firstname.lastname@example.org
or by fax 209-825-3198.
If you are unsure a student needs counseling or if you have any questions at all, please feel free to reach out and speak with them. You can call or email any time. Our VCC Counselors are located in the Counseling Office and you will also be able to find hard copies of Referral Forms and Permission Slips in English and Spanish outside their office doors.
