Counselor's Corner

Madison Powers-Bergeson

Hello Thoreau Families,

My name is Madison Powers-Bergeson and I am the school counselor here at Thoreau Elementary! It is an absolute honor and joy to work alongside Thoreau’s dedicated staff and families. I am here for all of our students and I’m committed to helping them grow emotionally, socially and academically.

Here are some of the ways I serve our students:



  • Group counseling is available for students who may need counseling support. Group topics include: Friendship, Family Changes, Social Skills, Self-Regulation, Anxiety.


  • I will see a student individually for various reasons, but I do not provide on-going therapy. I have a list of local counselors within the Kirkland area if needed. Contact me if interested.

I also consult with families and help connect families to resources in our community. Please feel free to reach out if you have questions, concerns or just want to learn more!


Thank you,

Ms. Powers
