Working with Parents for the best results for the child

Jeannette Swanson – Counselor

My name is Jeannette Swanson, and I am a licensed school counselor in the State of Illinois. I hold a master’s degree in psychology and am currently also working to become a licensed professional counselor (LPC). 

The 2024-25 school year will be my fourth year working directly with children and adolescents, grades PK-8, in the Catholic school system in suburban Chicago. I am also a member of the Archdiocese of Chicago Crisis Support Team and will serve on the planning committee to design a day of training for new and returning counselors within the Archdiocese. 

In my spare time, I enjoy films and literature, traveling, antiquing, home improvement, cooking and baking, cycling, yoga, and trail-walking. My husband, James, and I maintain our home locally in Naperville.



Our goal is to help parents choose the best school for their situation.  Our balanced curriculum with well-rounded programs include strong academic & character building.
