Mr. Brett Elliott
Hello, my name is Brett Elliott. I graduated from the University of Dayton in 2014 with my master's degree in School Counseling. This is my third year as a counselor at LT Ball. Prior to becoming a counselor I graduated from Ohio Northern University and taught Social Studies for 11 years at Stebbins High School in Riverside. I became a counselor because of my passion for helping students and love for all things related to psychology. When I'm not at school my favorite hobbies are golf, movies, playing the guitar, and watching sports. I love the Bengals and the Buckeyes, but I will still work with Browns and Wolverines fans :)
As a school counselor I will work with students and parents to help with personal, social, and academic challenges. I will provide students with individual counseling, small group counseling, and classroom guidance.
If I can be of any assistance please do not hesitate to contact me.
Individual CounselingIndividual counseling sessions can be requested by the student, parent, or teacher. If a student wishes to request a session, counseling request forms are located in a box outside of my office door. Take the request from the box fill it out and drop it in the drop box also located outside of my office door. If a parent wishes to request a session please call my office 669-6324 or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.Individual counseling can help students with academic, social, and/or emotional concerns.Group CounselingThis year I will be running groups for:-Friendship/Social Skills-Conflict Resolution/Anger Management-GriefThey will be run for roughly 6-8 weeks, then we will evaluate the need to continue. If you would like to have your student in one of these groups please contact me. A Student can also be referred to a group by his/her classroom teacher, or myself.If your student is chosen for a group you will receive a permission slip and phone call.Classroom GuidanceClassroom lessons will be provided at the beginning of the school year and continued on an as needed basis based upon teacher's needs in the classroom.ApproachI believe in making students problem solvers. I will primarily use the Solution Focused Approach in counseling. When encountered with a problem I will walk students through the process of-defining the problem-exploring multiple options to solve the problem-evaluating those options and choosing one-evaluating the results.
