meet the ths counseling staff

Bre Goetz:  Ms. Goetz has been a counselor at THS since 2015.  She graduated from Cal Poly SLO with a degree in Liberal Studies and multiple-subject teaching credential but had always dreamed of becoming a high school counselor.  After receiving her masters degree in school counseling from Point Loma Nazarene University, she worked for 4 years as an Intervention Counselor at San Gabriel High School in LA county working with at-risk students.  Prior to her start at THS, she spent 3 years as an Academic Advisor in the College of Liberal Arts at Cal Poly SLO counseling and advising college students in 17 different majors.  Longing for more time with her kids, Ms. Goetz made the difficult decision to leave college counseling and return to the high school setting which has proven to be a great decision.  In her free time, she loves riding around SLO on her electric bikes with her wife and three kids, Cora, Grey and Nell.

Jessica Hoyt:  Mrs. Hoyt started her career in education as a high school science teacher and cross country/track and field coach.  She loved both roles, and decided to blend her psychology degree and her passion for mentoring high school students.  In 2018 she, therefore, decided to pursue a masters in counseling in order to become a school counselor.  She is ecstatic to be on the THS counseling team, and is most looking forward to working with the students, staff, and families at THS.  Mrs. Hoyt has two young children who she loves to hike, swim, camp and kayak with. When she gets time alone you can find her out on a run or on a surf date with her husband, who she met running collegiate cross country with at UC Santa Cruz.  Come say hi to her when you have a change!


Alexxa Craton: Mrs. Craton has been a counselor for TUSD since 2017. She has worked at TES, VES and now THS.  She graduated from Azusa Pacific University with a degree in Child and Family Psychology.  After receiving her PPS credential and masters degree in educational counseling, she worked in LA as a school counselor for a year, followed by an additional 6 years at Monte Vista Christian High School in Santa Cruz.  In her free time, you can find her trying to expel the endless amount of energy of her three young boys by going to the beach, water park, and sports practices.

Katie Creighton:  Counseling Intern/Master's Candidate - Ms. Creighton is here everyday 3rd  and 4th period to meet with struggling students of any kind.  She also works part time at THS as a classroom aide for students in special education.  Please reach out to your child's counselor if you are interested in getting connected with her.
