Mr. Johnson's School Counseling Page
St. Norbert Families/Parents,
I look forward to supporting your child's social, emotional, and academic/career skill development this 2021-2022 school year. As a school counselor, I work in concert with our teachers, administrators, and outside counseling providers/stakeholders to help create a healthy school environment for students. The mental health of our students and families is a critical, ongoing investment and service for all students, regardless of student ability or circumstance. Please know that I am here to listen, collaborate, provide strategies and outside mental health referrals. For more info on the issues that I provide support with, you can click on the following link: https://www.stnorbertschool.org/apps/pages/index.jsp?uREC_ID=1681365&type=d&pREC_ID=1835619
Please reference this page for important mental health resources and trends in the counseling community.

Prior to working at St. Norbert School, I was a school counselor in Chicago Public Schools. I have my masters degree in School Counseling from DePaul University and am a state and nationally-certified professional school counselor.
I am an advocate for social justice and spiritual development. I enjoy the outdoors and enjoy helping students find their passion for life-long learning and growth.
