School Counseling

Welcome to the School Counseling page for Vass-Lakeview Elementary! My name is Ruth Howson, the School Guidance Counselor, and I look forward to working with your child this year and providing support for not only your child but also you as a parent and the amazing teachers that will be working with your child. 

I have a BS in Psychology from Rogers State University and an MS in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Capella University with a Graduate Certification in Play Therapy. While I am new to Moore County Schools, I have several years of experience working with youth with Intellectual Developmental Disabilities, substance use disorders and mental health disorders as well as youth involved with Juvenile Justice. 

I am a parent to a teenager as well as 2 goofy dogs and 2 feisty cats. I enjoy gardening, painting, crafting, Starbucks and getting manicures and pedicures!
