Mrs. Kathy Kirk, LMFT, PPS » Welcome to the Counseling Department!

Welcome to the Counseling Department!

Kathy Kirk has been a school counselor for over 20 years and has a heart for children and their families. Kathy's mission is to develop responsible, self-confidant, self-directed leaders who are motivated and goal-oriented as she supports and encourages students, parents, and teachers. Kathy oversees the counseling program at Elevate and supervises the Counseling Interns who are graduate students in the counseling profession.
At Elevate, she teaches a social skills curriculum twice a month in each classroom, runs friendship groups for those students who can benefit from extra support, and meets individually with students as needed. This is Kathy’s fifth year here at Elevate and she is excited that she will be on both campuses each day. In general, she will start her day at our Serra Mesa campus and then head to Tierrasanta campus in time for their lunch.
When Kathy is not at school, she works at Living Water Counseling in Carlsbad where she is the Director of Counseling and has her own private practice. Kathy loves spending time with her children (she has two daughters in college and a son in high school), hanging out at the beach, or working out in the gym.

If you have any questions or concerns regarding your child, please feel free to contact Kathy!
