My name is Lauren Heller and I am so excited to be your new school counselor! I am a passionate school counselor who takes a strength-based and solution-focused approach to working with students. It is my belief that all students have the ability to succeed. I hope to create an environment where students have the confidence to believe in themselves, the strength to be resilient, and the motivation to achieve their dreams.

This is my first year at HNES after spending the past few years living in snowy upstate New York. I graduated from Syracuse University (go orange!) where I received both my bachelor’s degree in education and psychology and my master’s degree in school counseling. I will be here Monday-Friday working with students in the classroom, small groups, and individually. I look forward to supporting our incredible students in their academic, personal, social and emotional growth.


Mrs. Choi

My name is Katie Choi and I am one of the professional school counselors at Henderson. This will be my third year at Henderson, and I will be splitting my time between Henderson (M/T) and Loch Lomond Elementary (W-F). I will be primarily running small groups and meeting students individually.  I look forward to assisting students to grow in their academic, social, and emotional development. 

I received my M.Ed. in school counseling from George Mason University. When I am not at school, you’d probably find me playing piano or cooking delicious food. 

I'm looking forward to another wonderful year at Henderson!
