Counseling Services

Southwest Tennessee Community College is committed to the development of the whole person, with specific focus on the intellectual, social, emotional, psychological, and spiritual dimensions. Southwest endeavors to provide a caring atmosphere of mattering while offering a myriad of opportunities and resources for students to experience wholeness within the context of a community of learners.

Southwest Tennessee Counseling Services is currently staffed by a part-time, on-campus counselor with access to contract counseling services provided by a licensed clinical social worker and a fully-staffed higher education Psychological Services Center. Additional staffing will include a full-time Mental Health Counselor and practicum students (psychology, counseling, and/or social work) supervised by the full-time counselor to assist students with their counseling needs.

In addition to on-campus services, limited off-campus services are available through community service providers by referral of the Director of Student Development, the Executive Director of Retention & Student Success, and/or the Vice President for Student Affairs. For more information contact the Director of Student Development, Phoenix Worthy at pworthy@southwest.tn.edu or contact the Executive Director of Retention and Student Success, Dr. Jacqueline S. Taylor at jstaylor@southwest.tn.edu. You may also reach both individuals at 901-333-4179 or 901-333-4265 respectively.
