For those of you who don’t know me yet, my name is Courtney Lawson and I’m the School Counselor here at DeSmet. I have lived in and around the Missoula Valley for the majority of my life and feel so fortunate to call this home! I graduated from the University of Montana with degrees in history and psychology and went on, after having my two kids and working as a preschool teacher, to get my master’s in school counseling (my passion!). I am also registered with the National Board of Certified Counselors.
My training and program align with the American School Counseling Association’s national standards, as well as, the Montana School Counseling Association to promote student success in three domains: Personal/Social, Academics, and Career Readiness. I am here to support your student(s), whether that is on an individual level, small groups or through in-classroom counseling (which all classes have once a week). Please feel free to call, leave a message or email if you have any questions/concerns. I look forward to hearing from you!
