Hanson, Katherine

School Counselor & 504 Building Coordinator, Homeless Program/McKinney Vento Program Building contact

I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor with the State of Washington, in addition to being a Certificated School Counselor. I have a B.A. from Amherst College in Classics and a Master’s degree from Seattle University in Mental Health and School Counseling. I used to teach Greek, Latin, History and Philosophy at Milton and Tabor academies in Massachusetts and was also a professional classical musician for many years.  Before coming to schools, I was a mental health and behavior therapist for Seattle Children’s Home and Navos, as well as in private practice. On a personal note, I have one daughter and three step-sons, and I love music, surfing, sailing, hiking and SCUBA diving!

I look forward to supporting your children and the TOPS community!
