Meet the Team
My name is Mrs. Carlson. I am the full time School Counselor at Healdsburg Junior High, and middle school is where I love to be! I grew up in a suburb of Chicago, where I dreamed of becoming a world-famous oboist and moving out west since I was a young girl. I followed the latter half of that dream by moving to Seattle after high school and attending Seattle Pacific University, but put the music dreams on hold while I studied psychology :) After graduating with my B.S in Psychology, I worked at several schools in Santa Cruz as a paraprofessional for students with autism. I later settled down with my husband in Sebastopol, where we lived in the woods, started a family, and I decided to pursue my master's in School Counseling at Sonoma State University. I graduated with my M.A. degree in 2013 and was invited to become part of the HJH team the following year! HJH has become like home to me, and I feel fortunate to have the opportunity to support your students during these complex years of their lives! I enjoy collaborating with parents to best support our students, so please contact me at any time during the year.
