Counselor Page
Instructor: Ms. Bergerud   
Thank you for visiting the Gator Counseling Page! Mrs. Jeanne Bergerud is the full time counselor at Garrisonville and works with every grade level. Mrs. Bergerud received her Masterís in Counseling from the University of Maryland and after working as a counselor in the private, military, and nonprofit sector, went back to school to earn a school counseling endorsement from George Mason University. She has been a school counselor since 2000. Please contact Mrs. Bergerud by phone or email.
School counselors are professionally trained to assist students with educational, social, and emotional needs. The counseling program in Stafford County Schools is developmental and preventative. The three major components of the school counseling program are classroom guidance, group counseling and individual counseling.
Classroom Guidance: At Garrisonville, classroom guidance is at least once a month ( except during SOL testing) for all grade levels. This year classroom guidance lessons will revolve around the tenets of our school mission: developing the necessary skills to enhance problem-solving, leadership, effective communication, and collaboration in order to grow as creative and productive citizens. If you ask your child about Mrs. Bergerudís classroom visit, they may tell you, for example, that they worked in groups to complete a friendship activity or they played a game about school rules, or they were read a book about being a good listener or role played how not to get bullied.
Group Counseling:† Small groups are an excellent way for children to learn from and with peers experiencing similar concerns. Groups are organized by the needs of our students through parent and teacher requests. Groups are held during the school day and generally run for six weeks. Parent permission is required. Mrs. Bergerud usually groups students by grade level and does her best to avoid collecting students during major instructional activities. Topics may include anger management, family changes, organizational strategies, problem solving, friendship skills or concerns, and new student adjustment.
Individual Counseling: Individual counseling is available for students experiencing a particular concern. Parents or teachers may refer a student for individual time with the counselor. Students may also self-refer. In the school setting, individual counseling is usually brief in nature. Serious concerns are referred to appropriate outside agencies.
Conferences and Consultation: Please contact Mrs. Bergerud if you would like a conference or need information about area services. Information about the counseling program will be in the Gator Gazette, Gator Gram and on this web page. Make sure to visit often J
