Courtney Besotes, LCSW

Harrisburg Elementary School Counselor


541-995-6544 (ext.164)

My family moved to Harrisburg in Spring 2020, and I have been the counselor at Harrisburg Elementary since Fall 2020. In my personal time I enjoy my family time, my dogs, CrossFit, camping, hunting, dirt biking/off-roading, and spending time in the sunshine! I have a deep passion for helping all kids. I have worked in school settings as a school social worker and school counselor for 8 years, across all ages (high school-4 years, middle school-1 year, elementary school-3 years). I have fallen in love with supporting the elementary age group and enjoy being able to support the students of my own community. At HES I provide weekly social-emotional learning lessons to every classroom to support positive and healthy social-emotional growth for all students. I also provide small group social skill lessons to continue the development of skills in areas such as leadership, relationship skills, social awareness, self-awareness, and personal responsibility. As the school counselor, I am here to help and support families and students thrive!

My name is Madison Brock and I am the school counselor at Harrisburg High School. I am a Harrisburg graduate and later earned my master's degree in school counseling from Northwest Christian University (now Bushnell) in Eugene, OR. My primary responsibility is to promote the academic, career, and social/emotional development of all students.
