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:
- I partner with teachers to deliver Social Emotional Lessons in all classrooms throughout the school year.
- I currently use the Kelso’s Choices Curriculum and Second Step Curriculum.
SMALL GROUP COUNSELING
- 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!
