In an increasingly stressful world, everyone deserves to be treated with empathy and understanding. As you seek support for your child, Kay will meet them where they are and will focus on your child as a person and their strengths, rather than concentrate on the perceived problem. By developing strategies and skills that involve the whole family, we can help children handle their big emotions and therefore, promote healthy development. As a systemic thinker, Kay believes each person in the family will play a part in these changes. By fostering an authentic therapeutic relationship with the whole family, Kay believes that your child and the relationships within your family will flourish.
Kay is completing her Master of Marriage and Family Therapy degree at Regis University. She has entered the clinical phase of her education, while continuing to work towards achieving the program’s certificate for counseling children and adolescents. At the Regis Center for Counseling and Family Therapy, Kay utilized a strengths-based approach and many creative interventions with her clients and is eager to continue this work at the Early Childhood Wellness Place. As an intern therapist, Kay will be supervised by Blair Skinner, LMFT. During her undergraduate education at the University of Wisconsin, Kay had numerous experiences working with children and adolescents. For instance, she worked as a preschool teacher and as a court worker intern at a juvenile detention center. Before re-entering the world of early childhood, Kay worked in the finance industry in San Francisco, a government agency in New Zealand, and at CU Boulder’s technology transfer office. These experiences have prepared her to serve a wide range of populations, approaching each with empathy and encouragement. She is eager to return to her passion of working with children and will foster a warm therapeutic relationship with you and your family.
