      Hello Hellgate Elementary familes!  I'm very excited to be working on my 13th year here at Hellgate Elementary. For four years before being at Hellgate, I was a Counselor and Spanish Teacher at Lolo School. I also am more than honored to be a Past-President of the Montana School Counseling Association, and to have served on the Missoula Counseling Leadership Team with some amazing counselors from our area!
     We have just ended remote learning and school counseling for the Spring 2020.  Over the summer, I will be checking my email occasionally, but if you are in need of counseling, please know that school counselors cannot practice over the summer and you are welcome to look at the attached list on my page here, of outside counselors that may be able to help you. 
      Please know you may refer to that list, or you can reach out to our CSCT program that may be able to provide assistance at this time to families who may like some extra help.  This is through the company Western Montana Mental Health.  If you are experiencing an emergency please call 911.
