I am Julie Sorenson, and I am excited to be the school counselor at STEM Academy and Compass High School. 

I have a school counseling licence as well as an L.L.P.C. (Limited Licence Professional Counselor). I have a BA in Elementary Education, an MA in School Counseling/Educational Counseling, and am working toward my DMFT (Doctorate of Marriage and Family Counseling). 

I taught in elementary classrooms for four years at Oakland Academy. I was an Outpatient Therapist for the Community Healing Center where I was stationed at Portage Community High School. I was a screener at Borgess Hospital where I screened patients and referred them for appropriate services. I was a behavior interventionist for 5 years at Green Meadow Elementary. I was an on-call CISM (Critical Incident Stress Management) coordinator for Calhoun County where I assisted administration when there was a death. I also provided education for CISM and Suicide Prevention for teachers, counselors, and administrators. I was a School Counselor at Vicksburg Elementary Schools. I teach a class at Western Michigan University at least once during the school year. I am currently the School Coordinator/School Counselor for Compass High School and STEM Academy.

I will be at Compass High School three days a week and at STEM Academy two days a week. My days at Compass are Monday, Tuesday and Friday. I will be at STEM Academy on Wednesdays and Thursdays.

How I service our students:

I am here to support the students here at Comstock Public Schools. I am passionate to help people find their own personal success, and I am looking forward to a great year getting to know the students at Compass and STEM. Please, feel free to contact me with any questions.
